This book, which is co-published with the Preservation of Monuments Board, takes a fascinating look into the architecture and history of twenty of Singapore’s treasured religious monuments.
Each monument is rendered in a detailed illustration revealing the building’s interior, and accompanied by an informative outline of its architectural features.
The book also explores the socio-historical foundations of these buildings, detailing the events and people that brought them into existence. From their embryonic stage as a pioneer’s dream to becoming centres of worship and communal life, this book takes you on an informative journey tracing the stories of our religious monuments from their origins to the present day.
