Supreme Court and City Hall

Built in 1939, this classical building with its Corinthian columns, classic design, and spacious interiors that feature murals by Italian artist, Cavaliere Rodolfo Nolli, projects a sense of quiet restraint and dignity. It is one of the finest buildings ever built during the British rule in Singapore. Exhibits on the history of the Courts and interactive electronic information kiosks are located at the ground floor of the Supreme Court Building. Just beside the Supreme Court is City Hall, which was built in 1929. It was the setting for the Japanese surrender to Lord Mountbatten in 1945 during World War II.

Visitors are welcomed to tour the premises, as well as attend all open court hearings unless otherwise ordered. However, visitors are requested to be appropriately attired (no sleeveless t-shirts, shorts, singlets or slippers). Photographic and video equipment are not allowed on the premises. Other electronic equipment such as handphones and pagers must be turned off or switched to silent mode.

Getting there : Walk towards the Padang on St. Andrew's Road from City Hall MRT Station.

Civilian War Memorial

The War Memorial is dedicated to civilians who died during the Japanese Occupation in World War II. It has a structure of four tapering white columns that reach 67-meters high each representing a different ethnic group. Singaporeans commonly refer it to as the "chopsticks memorial".

Getting there : Alight at City Hall MRT Station.
