Haw Par Villa is one of Singapore’s most unusual attractions. Built by Burmese-Chinese brothers who conducted business in Singapore, it dates back to 1937. Originally named the Tiger Balm Gardens, the park was created with the goal of reminding people of traditional and long-standing Chinese morals and values. Home to numerous fascinating and thought-provoking larger-than-life statues, sculptures, and painted scenes, Haw Par Villa combines religious elements from Confucianism, Taoism, and Buddhism, as well as Chinese mythology, history, and folklore. It truly is an interesting place to spend a few hours when visiting Singapore.
