The Jalan Besar Heritage Trail is a tale of two former swamps. First, we trace the urban development of a floodplain that once existed on the north bank of the Rochor River. Next, we chart the stories of the communities and cultures that sprung up around the muddy basin of Singapore’s longest waterway, the Kallang River.
Please note that the Jalan Besar Heritage Trail will be undergoing a refresh to bring you updated information on the different sites. Stay tuned to this space!
