To Gel Singapore: Beautiful Attractions In Singapore
Togel Singapore is the second most popular tourist attraction in Singapore after Sentosa. However, its popularity has not diminished even for a day as it attracts thousands of tourists and travelers from across the globe on special Singapore tours. To be fair, the popularity of the island has not declined despite the arrival of super-sized Ferris wheels known as the Yellow Marineduckers, which has made Ferris Wheeling in Singapore quite hazardous for the locals. But what draws in the tourists in high numbers to Togel are the many places of interest that can be explored by just a walk or ride around. And no trip to Togel would be complete without at least one stop at the Lanyang Ironworks, a famous landmark that once served as an early model for some of the early American railroads in the USA.
The Lanyang Ironworks was built in 1908 and went through several modifications before it was finally left standing today as a fascinating tourist attraction. In fact, the Lanyang Ironworks is a part of the heritage of Singapore and was recognized as such in the year 2020 by the then prime minister of the country. A brief history of the Ironworks reveals that the then ruler of Singapore, the then Mr. John S. Byford, was trying to improve the roads and railways of the country. In fact, he wanted to build an iron factory at Lanyang to boost the manufacturing industry of the country. As a result, the Lanyang Ironworks was built in a brief time frame and it became a key component of the Singharaja temple complex.
The ironworks at Lanyang is considered as one of the finest examples of ancient Chinese workmanship and as such it attracts tourists from around the world who come to admire the fine craftsmanship. To this day, the ironworks exude the aura of traditional Chinese culture with its combination of the oriental and the local features. One can also see the influences of European styles like those found in many buildings in Europe like the Anne Frank House. However, the difference between the present generation of Singapore and the past is that the former has allowed the country to progress technologically, socially and culturally while the latter preserved the heritage of bygone times.
Today, people coming to Lanyang are surprised to see how far the arts of the Chinese have advanced. As a result of the continuing progress of technology, the art of Chinese painting and calligraphy has undergone tremendous change with the passage of time. In fact, today there are over 30 professional painters who specialize in Chinese painting in Singapore. Among these is the well-known artist Dr Yapje Kae, known for his depiction of beautiful landscapes in Pasaran Tiang Een and Telahakra Vihar.
Apart from these, Dr Lim Chin Soon, Yip Man Seng and Yee Teer, all from the group of Dr Yapje Kae, have done a wonderful job of capturing the local culture in their fine art pieces such as Adalah to Gel Seerye, Telahakra Vihar to Gel Sang Teer and Ishmael to Gel Panorama. The Chinese influence can also be seen in the Chinese restaurant called Chunniak Chinese Restaurant that is run by Mr Lim Chin Soon. In fact, it is just a few steps away from the To Gel Singapore. The whole atmosphere in this restaurant exudes the vibrancy and vitality of the original Chinese culture.
Dr Yapje Kae, Mr Lim Chin Soon and others have done an amazing work in transforming the place into a new temple of arts. So come and have some fun in one of the most beautiful places in the world – To Gel Singapore.
