REFLECTIONS AT BUKIT CHANDU:

Overview:
Reflections at Bukit Chandu is a World War II interpretative centre housed in a restored black and white colonial bungalow close to the former battle site - the Battle of Pasir Panjang, where 1,400 brave soldiers from the Malay Regiment heroically defended the last stand against a 13,000-strong Japanese army.

The Centre was officially opened Dr Tony Tan (then Singapore Deputy Prime Minister & Minister for Defence) on 15 February 2002. The bungalow in which the permanent exhibition is housed is one of the last remaining bungalows in Singapore, built at the turn of the 20th century for British senior officers.

The centre is a place for visitors to reflect upon Singapore's heritage of heroism. The museum's exhibition gallery covers the history of World War II in Malaya, detailing the late 1930s socio-political climate of the Malay Peninsula, Japan's invasion plans, and the British strategy for defending Singapore.
