Merlion

The Merlion was created in 1964 by Fraser Brunner as an emblem for the Singapore Tourism Board. It takes the shape of a lion head and a fish body resting on a crest of waves symbolising the legend of the rediscovery of Singapura. It is symbolic of the ancient city of Temasek. In ancient times, Singapore was known as Temasek which is Javanese for the sea. At the end of the 4th century A.D, Temasek was destroyed by the Siamese, according to some historians, but by the Javanese according to others. As recorded in the legend in the Malay Annals," Prince Nila Utama of the Sri Vijaya empire rediscovered the island later in the 11th century A.D. On seeing a strange beast (which he later learnt was a lion) upon his landing he named the island Singapura which is a Sanskrit word for Lion (Singa) City (Pura).
It 8.6 metres in height and weighs 70 tons. Placed at Merlion Park, located next to One Fullerton, overlooking scenic Marina Bay.

Anderson Bridge

This elegant bridge spanning the mouth of the Singapore River displays an excellent combination of intricate plaster and metalwork unmatched by any other bridge locally. It comprises three steel arches with supporting steel ribs extending across them, two rusticated archways and a fluted pier at each end. Constructed between 1908-1910 to replace an older bridge, the Anderson Bridge was built with a good clearance to allow vessels to pass under at high tide. Named after Sir John Anderson (Governor of the Straits Settlements, 1904-1911) it was constructed because the Cavenagh Bridge was unable to cope with increasing traffic.

St. Pauls Hill

On top of the hill which guards one side of the river mouth, the Portuguese built a small church which was named 'Our Lady of the Annunciation'. The construction was founded by a Portuguese captain in 1521. Many of the stones came from the foundations of the sultan's palace, which the Portuguese demolished. Over the years, the small chapel was enlarged and a bell tower added. When the Dutch took over Melaka, they renamed the church, but later built their own Christ Church at the base of the hill in the Town Square. Later, the Dutch pulled off the roof and built catwalks for their soldiers, effectively turning the church into a fort. Under British rule, they razed the tower and eventually ended up using the building to store ammunition. The British did build a lighthouse in front of the church, and continued to use the grounds around it as a graveyard.

Buloh Kasap Bridge


This bridge was once crossing the river Sungei Muar near the town of Buloh Kasap, Segamat, in the Johor state in Malaysia. During the Japanese Invasion (1941-1945) in Malaysia, the Japanese troops continously forced the British troops more southwards. In January 1942, the British gave up Kuala Lumpur and the line of defence was established in north Johor. Between the 19th and 29th January 1942, this line collapsed and the British troops were forced to retire to Singapore. The British troops destroyed the bridge in order to stop the Japanes troops from moving southwards.

Kakku Temple

The ancient pagodas of Kakku are located in the Shan State. At an quite small area you find about 2000 3 to 4m high stupas laid out in neat rows. This place is 40km south of Taunggyi and was just recently opened to foreigners. Unfortunately because of this the place is being restorated fast, so the old ruins are disappearing/renovated and very soon you cant find the "pictoresque" ruines anymore. According to legends this place is dated back to 3rd century BC.
