What people are saying:

This is a fairly simple monument consisting of four pillars, each 65 meters high, to commemorate the civilian victims of Japan during World War II and the four main races of Singapore-Malay, Chinese, Indian and Eurasian. The memorial is built on a burial chamber, which contains the remains excavated from the mass graves found throughout the city. The area has been carefully maintained. This is an iconic landmark called "chopsticks" by the locals. A beautiful monument built for the innocent citizens who lost their lives during the Japanese occupation of Singapore. This monument is called the Four Chopsticks locally. It is a very suitable monument, simple and low-key, but well maintained, "lest we forget."
