Join us as we explore the rich history and origins of Balestier from as early as 1835. From landmarks like Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH) to the Maha Sasanaramsi Burmese Buddhist Temple, delve into the architectural and cultural developments these places went through over time to give Balestier the unique charm it holds today.
