Syonan Jinja – Japanese temple

Marked as a historical site in 2002

The earliest stamp showing a place of worship in Singapore featured the Japanese temple known as the Syonan Jinja. This temple was built during Japanese rule in Singapore (1942-1945).

Located in the MacRitchie Reservoir forest, visitors to the Syonan Jinja temple had to cross a 100-metre bridge. Today, only the granite components of the temple and the bridge supports remain.
