Another shot at the interesting architecture of the National Library of Singapore. The "wings" structures (left) are engineered to block direct sun and yet let light and breeze pass through. A method to keep the building cool in quasi equatorial climate.

The Armenian Apostolic Church of St. Gregory the Illuminator is the first Christian church built in Singapore in 1835.
The vaulted ceiling and cupola are based on traditional Armenian Church architecture.
Within the quiet tropical garden surrounding the church lie tomb markings of Armenians who died in Singapore. The tombstones were transported here in the early 1970’s from the Bukit Timah Cemetery.

The two little pagodas and the setting fun fighting to pierce through heavy clouds. We could hear the thunder and observe flashes of lightning. Altough the rain did not show.
The interior staircase of the tall pagoda.
