The history of Singapore is quite sad in the period of war after the Japanese occupied Singapore with a lot of civilian suffering. This memorial is a fitting tribute to those who suffered and died during those dark days. Worth a viewing

We made a point of visiting the war memorial whilst on the way to Raffles. The memorial remembers those who lost their lives in WWII and is lit up at night

A small garden with a monument to the killed civilian victims during the Second World War. There were about 50,000 people killed in the Japanese occupation.
