Skywatch: Singapore Civilian War Memorial

The civilian war memorial in Singapore is erected in memory of thousands of Singapore residents murdered during Japanese invasion and rule of Singapore during second world war. Civilian war memorial is located next to Raffles tower. It has four identical pillars, each 70 meters tall, one each representing Chinese, Indian, Malay and Eurasian community. The remains of the war victims are burried under the monument, giving it a emotional connect for family members of the victims.

During my previous visits I couldn't visit this memorial. This time managed to spend some time around it. May those souls rest in peace.
