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.
The Pavilion has a lot of details, such as dioramas on each side.
Some awkwardly curved bridges here.
Welcome to the turtles’ hideout.
Some sort of unwelcoming food outlet here, which was closed at time of visit.
Ruined stone columns with inscriptions.
This area also leads to the Aw Family Memorials, with this archway, the main bridge and the memorial tower forming a line.
There’s always something that is out of place at Haw Par Villa…
The next update, Mysterious Gardens will feature some of the stranger displays and abandoned spaces at Haw Par Villa.
