Legacy of a Royal Malay Port

Uncover an illuminating picture of modern Singapore’s original Malay enclave — Kampong Glam. Its journey from royal Malay port to cosmopolitan cultural capital spanned two centuries and is entwined with the rise of a young nation.

Though a rising colonial power ripped open its royal core, Kampong Glam town thrived thanks to the dynamic and inclusive spirit of its diverse trading communities. A centre for global Islam and the Malay world, it grew into an intellectual hub that would nurture Malay leaders whose visionary ideas transformed Singapore and the region.
