Description

A series of horticulture-themed gardens is strategically located on two raised land mounds that surround the heart of the Gardens. 4 Heritage Gardens reflect Singapore’s 4 main ethnic groups as well as the city-state’s colonial heritage. Each Garden explores the rich cultural significance of different plant species:

INDIAN GARDEN - inspired by a traditional lotus flower motif

The Indian culture is strongly influenced by Hinduism and the principles of the Vedas, the collections of hymns to gods. They are central to the development of how plants permeate many aspects of daily Indian culture. In Ayurveda, forests represent endless self-regeneration of life, and plants are used as offerings to gods and deities. Henna is used as body art, while Kolam is a floor design made with ground rice powders and layers of flowers.

CHINESE GARDEN - inspirational places for writers, poets, and artists

For centuries, plants have been a popular feature in the Chinese arts and culture for ornamental, religious and ceremonial purposes. In China, gardens were designed to reproduce natural scenes as closely as possible.

Take a stroll through the Chinese Garden and discover a balanced landscape where art imitates nature, with the use of rocks to resemble mountains, water features to resemble rivers and waterfalls, or pruning and training trees to appear windswept.

MALAY GARDEN - the story of life in a traditional village

The Malay community in Singapore cultivated many fruits like rambutan, jambu, coconut, and durian, and grew alternative vegetables like breadfruit and pandan. They also used plants for medicinal purposes. The forest also played an important part in the community’s daily lives, providing raw materials for building houses and boats.

COLONIAL GARDEN- the story of crops, spices, and plants as ‘Engines of Empire’

Singapore’s geographical position on the Spice Route made it her center of the spice and cash crop trade. Explore the Colonial Garden and discover some of the aromatic plants from her colonial past, including Cloves, Nutmeg, Rubber, Oil Palm, Coffee and Cocoa Trees.

These gardens bring to life our cultural heritage and colonial history, by interpreting the affinity between plants and cultural communities in Singapore. It also traces the history of the commercial crops that were discovered and/or cultivated in Singapore and Southeast Asia. These Gardens are uniquely Singapore, providing education outside of the classroom on our socio-economic and natural history
