Tanjong Pagar Railway Station

Built on reclaimed swampland, the Tanjong Pagar Railway Stations’s opening was conducted by Governor Sir Cecil Clementi Smith on 3 March 1932. It was the southernmost terminus of the Malayan Railway (now Keretapi Tanah Melayu Railway), connecting the Singapore harbour to the Malayan peninsular. The station possesses an architectural style that is strongly European. The arched entrance to the station is marked by four towering statues, symbolising Malaya's economic pillars—Agriculture, Commerce, Transport and Industry.
