Singapore - May 16, 2013: A sign in front of the Fort Canning Center, Singapore. Located on a hill, Fort Canning Park is one of Singapore's most historic landmarks. It has witnessed Singapore's golden age, when Malay Kings ruled from its peak, and watched as the island transformed into a vibrant trading trading port in the 19th century. During World War II, the hill was instrumental in Singapore's war efforts with numerous military buildings located there. Today, Fort Canning Park remains a well visited park and gardens in the city-state.
