About Fort Siloso

In the 19th century, Singapore was an important sea trading post for the British. To defend the island from sea invasion, Fort Siloso was built at the tip of Sentosa (once known as Blakang Mati).

During World War II, the Japanese troops invaded Singapore through Malaya and the guns in Fort Siloso were turned landwards to support the ground troops.

Today, Fort Siloso is a historical attraction being the only preserved coastal fort in Singapore with a rich memorabilia of WWII-era coastal guns and remains of fortified military structures and tunnels.
