Istana Open House Visit

Istana Open House
Sharing is caring!

Five days in a year, the public can enter and walk around the Istana Grounds and the Istana.

The most recent Istana Open House was held in conjunction with Hari Raya Puasa and the next will take place on Saturday, 30 July 2016.

During the Open House, visitors can enjoy the grounds, go on a tour of the Istana building, state room and banquet halls, and enjoy performances held throughout the day.

There are also booths by Wildlife Reserves Singapore and other organisations. There is even a children’s playground set up under the shade of mature trees.

Here are some pictures from the recent Istana Open House on 6 July 2016.
