The Bukit Batok Monument site is in the park. There are not many that can be seen now. The park is very beautiful and white, and the site feels more general, but for Singapore, it has more historical value.
The Bukit Batok monument site is in a beautiful park. There are some beautiful trees and many interesting birds. There is also an old quarry with sea turtles everywhere. The Bukit Batok monument site is very interesting. The shrine was destroyed before the surrender.
Bukit Batok Memorial, which consisted of the Syonan Chureito and British Memorial Cross, was built during the Japanese Occupation to honour dead
memorial of POW is located at the entrance of Bukit Batok Nature park (junction Upper Bukit Timah road and Lor Sesuai) I combined my visit to the memorial site with a visit to the Old Ford Factory museum.
During Japan’s invasion of Singapore, one of the fiercest battles between the Allied troops and the aggressors took place at the Bukit Timah area. It was also near the former Ford Factory, where the General Commanding Officer (GOM) Malaya Lieutenant-General Arthur Ernest Percival (1887-1966) eventually surrendered Singapore to Japan. That day was 15 February 1942, the beginning of Singapore’s darkest moments in history.
Originally called Syonan Chureito (Syonan being the Japanese name for Singapore during the war, and 'chureito' meaining 'cenotaph'), these days it's sometimes referred to as the Bukit Batok WWII Memorial.
