Sir Raffles' Statue, the founder of Singapore, is at the center of this square situated on the bank of the Singapore River at North Boat Quay in the heart of the Civic District. Raffles is said to have landed on this site January 28th, 1819, and as the plaque on the statue reads: changed the destiny of Singapore from an obscure fishing village to a great seaport and modern metropolis." Made of pure white poly marble, the statue is a cast of the original effigy located in front of the Victoria Theater & Concert Hall.
