Heroes of Singapore


Throughout history, people have erected statues and sculptures in honour of men and women of valour, courage and sacrifice. Tall, impressive and often austere – what do these memorials actually stand for? Who, or what, are we meant to remember?

On this trail, learn about some of Singapore’s very own heroes who gave up their lives for causes larger than themselves. Discover the fascinating stories behind each memorial’s design and construction. Be inspired by our Heroes of Singapore!
