The abandoned Keppel Hill Reservoir which is near Mount Faber in Singapore was built during the colonial period. It was used less frequently due to the small capacity it had and it was thus forgotten about. However, it was rediscovered in 2014.

Forgotten Keppel Hill Reservoir

According to the news archive, a 17 year old drowned the reservoir in the year 1948 when he went for a swim. His death was ruled a misadventure by the Singapore Coroner. There are also rumours that the Keppel Hill Reservoir is haunted 👻 so visiting alone or at night is not really advisable.
