Mount Faber was once known as Telok Blangah Hill but its name was changed to Mount Faber on July 1845. This was done to honour Captain Charles Edward Faber, a man from Madras Engineers that built a narrow winding road to establish a signal transmitter.
In 2005, a cable car station on Mount Faber is now a famous tourist attraction known as Faber Peak where you can see a panoramic view of Singapore.
Take a look at the ‘baby’ Merlion on Faber Point. This is not a real baby Merlin but was named so because it looks smaller than the Merlion at Merlion Park.
‘Baby’ Merlion is 3 metre tall and it is one of the five officially admitted Merlion by Singapore Tourism Board in Singapore. Are you curious about the rest 4 Merlions?
Ring The Bells
On top of Mont Faber, there is a bell called Bell of Happiness. You and your children can come here and ring it or take a picture together with it.
This bell is actually a gift for Sentosa Island in 1992 but it was given to Faber Peak in 2012.
There is a belief by visitors and couples that if you ring this bell together, you will be blessed with harmony, happiness and peace. Do you believe it?
