Fort Canning Hill is a historically-dense site of pre-eminence, the seat of political powers in early Singapore. Throughout the centuries, the hill has acquired at least eight different names, mirroring the island's fortunes. More numerous than the names given to the hill were the physical disturbances to its soil and the stories embedded within.
