Established in 1859, the Singapore Botanic Gardens was designed by Lawrence Niven whose work reflected the English Garden style that influenced the emergence of numerous English landscape gardens and public parks from the 18th century until this period. Today, this layout remains almost entirely intact, including the historic buildings such as Burkill Hall (1868), Ridley Hall (1882), Corner House (1910) and Holttum Hall (1921).
On 4 July 2015, the Gardens was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This calendar celebrates the Gardens’ heritage with panoramic monochrome images that form a part of the Gardens’ archives. We hope these fine photographs will encourage you to visit the Gardens and explore its well-loved and lesser known corners.
