Sun Yat Sen Nayang Memorial Hall Singapore Wan Wing Lodge

Dr Sun Yat Sen (famous revolutionary person in China) has a link to Singapore, as he visited Singapore and stay in this villa. The villa now named Sun Yat Sen Nanyang Memorial Hall is at 2 Tai Gin Road (in Balestier area) near to Ah Hood Road. Built in 1880s, this double storey villa also known as Wan Qing Lodge was bought by a rubber magnate Mr Teo Eng Hock for his aged mother. Mr Teo was a fervent supporter of the Chinese Revoluntionary activities and later offered the villa to Dr Sun Yat Sen for his activities in 1906. Wan Qing Lodge became the Headquarters of the revoluntionary movement in Southeast Asia. Today the Sun Yat Sen Memorial Hall is managed by the Singapore government and showcases rare photos, paintings, calligraphy works, rare artefacts and the 1911 chinese revoluntionary history which impacted Singapore.
