Ultra secure, and super high tech. That is the reason... More

The massive front of the building is very imposing, however, it could be cleaned a bit better. We were not able to go inside, so not really a place to make a detour for.

One of the grander buildings in the area, you won't miss it. Lies on a stretch of road where a few other attractions are. Definitely worth visiting while in the area.

This is one of the most iconic buildings in Singapore. Its a walking distance from the City hall MRT. Lot of people get themselves photographed in front of this building especially during weddings and graduations.

Here is my checkpoint when I started planning to go to Singapore. I love...love to saw Lady of Justice and it's really really beautiful like I imagine. Sadly the museum was close due to the maintenance.

Supreme court is a very modern structure. This place is a at a walking distance from City Hall MRT Station. I did not visit the premises inside. They allow photos from the across the street, where there is parliament. It was great clicking this well constructed building.
