This Garden is Singapore’s Most Controversial Attraction

by Judi Zienchuk

Amidst countless ultra-modern shopping malls and world-class hotels in Singapore sits the seemingly out-of-place “family” attraction, the Tiger Balm Gardens. Created by the Boon brothers, the original producers of the Tiger Balm pain-relief ointment, these gardens were a gift to the nation of Singapore, meant to teach the lessons of Buddhism. However, the controversial nature of many of the park’s 1, 000 statues has kept the park from developing into the attraction the brothers originally anticipated.

Take a peek inside Singapore’s oddest, and most controversial, family attraction.
