Interesting area, the serenity of a memorial to the people hurt during the Japanese occupation. Simple and moving.

“A silent and respected area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

It is a beautiful silent place that should be respected.There is not a single piece of trash and there should not be as we should not pollute such a lovely area.Do go there and write something in the visitors logbook on the left shelter. A must go for Singapore!

“A Poignant Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

My Wife's Uncle was a PoW and in all possibility spent some time at Kranji. We visited the site on our recent visit to Singapore and tried to envisage what it must have been like for those young men during the war. A fitting memorial.
