    Cenotaph at Esplanade

    by SLLiew Written Aug 21, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Cenotaph is a 60 feet granite memorial.

    It was built originally for the memory of 124 Singaporeans who died during World War I.

    Later on the other side, it was added for those who gave their lives during World War II.

    The inscriptions are telling and poignant...
    On one side "The Glorious Dead"
    On the other side " They died so we might live"
