Harmony Walks: A Walking Tour of Queen, Waterloo and Bencoolen Streets, 30 April 2021

Description
Harmony Walks is a trail developed by the National Heritage Board (NHB) that celebrates Singapore’s religious and racial harmony, and explores the commonalities shared by diverse communities in the areas of religion, culture and built heritage.

Join us to explore the historic area of Queen, Waterloo and Bencoolen streets, where Eurasians, Chinese, Indians, Jews, Malays as well as other communities have lived, worked and played. The diverse social and religious institutions found in this small precinct reflect the many communities that have coexisted peacefully over the centuries.

Participants must wear masks at all times and observe safe distancing measures as instructed by our tour guide. In view of Covid-19, we will not be entering the premise of any religious institution as they are closed for public walk-ins.
