Haw Par Villa - Pavilion and Pagoda

The Pavilion and Pagoda zone at Haw Par Villa is a brief respite from the terrors of the Ten Courts of Hell. It is a small but open area, with a large pond being the key highlight – the Pagoda and Pavilion in the middle. A series of faded ornamental bridges link different parts of the pool together.

Possibly to contrast the grim visuals in the earlier section, the Pavilion and Pagoda is filled with prominent statues of the Buddha and the Goddess of Mercy.
