Once the seat of Temasek, a 14th-century Malay kingdom, Fort Canning Park is now a verdant, tranquil oasis in the heart of the city. Because of the lovely view the site commands, Raffles built his bungalow here, and until the mid-19th century, it was home to Singapore’s governors. The park was also the first site of Raffles’ botanical garden.
In 1860, Fort Canning was built here; only the fort gate still stands. Nearby is the Fort Canning Center, formerly a barracks that now serves as a performance space and gallery. Another historic landmark is the Battle Box, a World War II bunker containing a museum that uses animatronics to recreate the 1942 surrender of the city to the Japanese. Also worth a visit is the ASIAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) sculpture park.
