Old Supreme Court of Singapore

The building was the last structure in the style of classical architecture to be built in the former British colony. It is planned to become an arts and cultural centre in future, with plans to refurbish the building.

The Victoria Theatre and Concert Hall (can’t see the clock due to the lighting)
The Victoria Theatre and Concert Hall, along Empress Place, are two separate buildings built more than 40 years apart and joined by a Clock Tower. Also known as the Town Hall and the Victoria Memorial Hall, respectively, they have long been a meeting place for Singaporeans, for various functions ranging from political meetings to musical and stage performances. The Town Hall once housed various government services, including serving as the home for the Singapore Library (later renamed Raffles Library and Museum) from 1862 to 1876. The Victoria Theatre and Concert Hall were gazetted as a national monument on 14 February 1992.
