Free Admission

Located off the North-Eastern coast of Singapore, Pulau Tekong has a land area of 2,365 hectares and is Singapore’s largest natural offshore island. Originally consisting of two islands – the Pulau Tekong Besar (meaning “Big Tekong Island” in Malay) and Pulau Tekong Kechil (meaning “Small Tekong Island” in Malay) – the islands were eventually merged in a land reclamation project in the mid-1990s to form what many know as Pulau Tekong today.

In the first edition of the Memorial Hall’s public lecture series on Pulau Tekong, mapping research consultant Mok Ly Yng will share the history of Tekong Island through a series of historical maps dating from the 15th century to present day. Join Mr Mok’s talk to learn more about the transformation of Tekong over the years!

Conducted in English. Seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis. No registration required.
