Bukit Timah


The History

The name Bukit Timah was first recorded in an 1828 map and it literally means ‘tin bearing hill’ in Malay. The total area of Bukit Timah, consisting of 8 sub-zones, is 1,732 ha. Bukit Timah Hill is also the highest hill in Singapore which the area also includes Singapore’s primary rainforest reserve – the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve.

In the early days of the 1900s, the densely populated land was well-known for giant industries such as the Cold Storage Dairy Farm, Ford Assembly Plant, and Eveready Batteries. Other developments such as the railway route, Hindhede Granite Quarry and Bukit Timah Turf Club along with notable schools such as the University of Singapore, Chinese High School, and Anglo-Chinese School were also located in the area.

During World War II, Bukit Timah was the location of Singapore’s surrender. The Japanese onslaught had culminated in their victory with the conquest of Bukit Timah Hill. When Lieutenant-General Percival surrendered at the Ford Factory off Bukit Timah Road, the Japanese army displayed its victory by marching down this road.
