Places No Comments

The Sun Yat Sen Villa was declared a national monument. It was built in the 1880s by a Chinese merchant Boey Chuan Poh. It was used as the Southeast Asian headquarters for the Chinese revolutionary movement and was the home of Dr Sun Yat Sen during his visits to Singapore in the 1900s. It was renamed Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall when it reopened in 2001 after a major restoration.
