Singh in the Lion City/ the story of Sikhism in Singapore

Sikhism in Singapore has its roots in the military and policing forces of the British Empire, with the earliest Sikh arriving in 1849.

Forever associated with protection, they were the chosen guardians of several prominent Chinese people for their Bukit Brown tombs, as shown in the photo above.

Join us to learn the story of Sikhism in the Lion City.

We will meet in an uber cool hotel run by a prominent Sikh family for an introduction and overview of the Sikh history and heritage in Singapore. From there we'll journey to Bukit Brown cemetery to see some of the above mentioned Sikh tomb guardians.

Our tour will end at a Sikh Temple where you will find out more about the day to day life of this fascinating community, as well as experience its warmth & hospitality.
