Landmark 3: Raffles Landing Site

This was the site where Sir Stamford Raffles, the founder of Singapore, was thought to have landed. This is located on the north bank of the Singapore River. A white marble statue of Raffles stands on this spot, though before this, the statue was made of bronze. However, the latter was moved to a site in the front of Victoria Concert Hall.
