Fort Siloso is the Singapore's only preserved coastal fort stands as an important window to our colonial past and a poignant reminder of the war years. When the British colonized Singapore in the 1870s, the new harbor (Keppel Harbor) saw the expansion of activities that risked being rampaged by invaders and pirates. It was decided that a fort would be sited at the western end of a small island called Pulau Blakang Mati (now known as Sentosa), so Fort Siloso, the first of such fortification, was born.
