    The spot is singular, Bob, but very famous in Singapore also!

A terrific park haunted by 1,000 statues, dragoons, monsters and bizarre stuff… More seriously, it is a really interesting place if you want to discover the Chinese folklore, legends and aspects of Confucianism.

My experience, Explo description: 

The park was constructed in 1937 by Aw Boon Haw and Aw Boon Par. These brothers had created a few years ago the famous Tiger Balm, and became very quickly billionaires.

The park has been sold by the family in 1979 to the Singapore tourism board. This is a very popular place.

Do not miss the Ten Courts of Hell scene : it shows a horrible and hidden underworld of tortures and torments displayed in the terrific mouth of a 60 meters long dragon…

Do not miss as well the strange Romance of the Three Kingdoms , the Laughing Buddha and the nice Goddess of Mercy.

Have a look at the Aw Boon’s Tiger Rolls Royce : a customized tiger looking Rolls Royce (right side of the park down hill when you enter into the park).

How getting there: 

A site map is displayed at the entrance of the park.
