Shuang Long Shan Ancestral Hall
9 Commonwealth Ln, Singapore 149551 Commonwealth Ln, Singapore 149551
An Urban Graveyard in the HeartlandsIt's pretty unusual for built-up and densely populated Singapore to have much open space, but in the midst of a popular public housing estate and just a five-minute walk from Commonwealth MRT lies this strange sight: a small plot of gravestones neatly lined up in a grid.
They belong to the Ying Fo Fui Kun, a Hakka Clan association that also owns the ancestral hall on that plot of land, which goes by the name Shuang Long Shan, or Double Dragon Hill. It's a surprisingly peaceful place in the daytime, and many residents take a shortcut through the graves unconcerned.
