Fort Canning Hill assumed diverse roles in Singapore's history that can be dated back to 700 years. In the 14th century, it was a symbol of Malay sovereignty. The existing Keramat Iskandar Shah is now a holy place for many Muslims, who still go there for prayers on special occasions. After Raffles landed Singapore in 1819, Fort Canning Hill became an administrative centre for the British colonial government, and once a military fortress. The programme takes you through the Hill’s changes in the past centuries. 福康宁山代表新加坡700年历史的开展,14世纪时,它曾是马来皇权的象征。山上遗留下的依斯干达沙圣墓,至今仍是回教徒心中的神圣之地。莱佛士1819年登陆后,福康宁山成为英殖民政府的行政中心,一度改建为军事堡垒。节目展现福康宁山命运的转变。
