Statue of Raffles, Singapore
(2.8/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
The founder of modern Singapore, Sir Stamford Raffles is timelessly encapsulated at Statue of Raffles. The statue sits in the spot that tradition says the Raffles first landed in the city, at Boat Quay. Originally unveiled in 1887, the original figure was replaced by an all-white polymarble edition in 1972. Sir Raffles stands, arms folded, gazing thoughtfully out over the sea. The statue has a quirky history itself, having been relocated twice: first for being too close to a nearby football pitch, and second for temporary protection during Japanese occupation. The original, bronze statue still exists just a short walk away. Make Statue of Raffles part of your personalized Singapore itinerary using our Singapore holiday planner.

  • "Was not mentioned in Sir Raffles statue, installed around the tourist map and written only with the"Raffles Landing Site". And one of the white Sir Raffles statue still stands against the Singapore River early in the morning from the Memorial shooting spot and was. Still, "Victoria Theatre and Concert Hall" stood in front of a similar "black Sir Raffles statue". "

  • Raffles place has a lot of importance to the people of Singapore. Once a quite green patch is now a much needed open space between some of the most famous high rises of Singapore. Sir Stamford Raffles...  more »

  • Iconic spot of Singapore, where the founder of the country is being idolized. Nothing much around the area, but great to just see the statue next to the Singapore river.
  • A statue commemorating the site supposedly where Raffles first landed in Singapore. This really defined the city and its expansion into a global financial center. The statue is ok, but the buikdis around really steal the show.
  • 在维修……郁闷了
