    Amazingly beautiful, not something that you should or would associate with a Cemetry. The location, the gardens, the structures, the view were all perfect.
    A train to Kranji Station and one of a number of buses (we used 960) about 2 stops drops you at the driveway. A walk up the driveway/entrance road and you are there. It is a sad place to visit, but we wanted to go pay our respects, and were surprised with the beauty of the site. Every bit of it was well thought out and planned. We spent over an hour walking the site, what struck me was the number of unknown graves, such a moving thing to see is a headstone with no name attached.
    There is nothing in the immediate area, and it's not a place you will happen upon, so you have to want to go here and make the effort to do so. But it is worth the time and effort, very moving experience.

    This was a total surprise, completely wild and untamed. Best to go with someone who knows their way around it, as it really is wild and huge. Apparently teeming with snakes, though we didn't see any (thankfully!), and the mosquitoes are pretty vicious, too, but what an amazing place.

    The walk there from the nearest MRT is interstinging enough, leafy suburban roads with big houses either side.

    Well kept cemetery with some fascinating plaques in english. Starts back in early singapore.

    According to local tradition, this is the burial place of Sultan Iskandar Syah, the last of the five kings of SIngapore. There is a tomb (I’m guessing it’s more of a cenotaph) to mark the grave of Sultan Iskandar Syah. I couldn’t help but admire the devotion and respect the Malay still accord this place and keep it in such good condition. I wouldn’t go out of the way to visit this unless you’re going to Fort Canning Park though.

    These two little cemeteries are next to each other just across the street from the Arab Quarter. Hundreds of headstones poke out from deep undergrowth. These two parks are in dire need of some tender loving care. Make sure you bring mosquito repellent, I was badly bitten as I wandered the grounds. Some of the larger mausoleums have columns and ornamental domes, There are even some Sultans buried here. The monuments with yellow cloth tied around their top are the most important, yellow signifying royalty. It is a shame that few people visit here and it is so forgotten.
