History of Fort Canning Hill
Known previously as the Forbidden Hill, the name was such as the hill was once the residence of Singapore’s native kings. 14th century king of Temasek, Sultan Iskandar Shah once lived here and his kramat (mausoleum) remains standing “guarding” the park now. His spirits is believed to be roaming around the current Fort Canning Park, including the area where outdoor concerts are held.
The outdoor concert area, surrounded by some of the tombstones on the walls, was previously the Old Christian cemetery. Perhaps next time you can have a hear whether the sound quality of the concerts there are exceptionally better, or if they may be special sound effects!

What is it?
Fort Canning Hill is formed in a way that resembles a “Mountain-climbing Tiger’ when you look at its feng shui. Formerly pristinely situated to be an iconic landscape landmark facing the town, the mouth of the ‘tiger’ is now stuffed with the old Ministry for Information and the Arts (MITA) now Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth (MCCY).  Who knows what can happen at night when there is a hungry tiger unable to eat?

Most importantly: What’s so spooky?
Loud noises and thumps have been reported by visitors to the park at night, as well as sightings of white hooded figures breezing by couples paktor-ing near the top of the shelters. If your girl is athletic, do date her somewhere else for a night jog unless you want other “guests” to make the home run more romantic!
