Singapore is just a little island. How rich can it be with Malay folktales?

But take a closer look and you will find legends of a mighty lion, deadly garfishes stalking our shores, and tales of bravery and sacrifice.

The Malay Heritage Centre’s new travelling exhibition is now at Fort Canning Centre and takes you on a discovery of the uniquely local Malay folktales. From familiar narratives to lesser-known tales, “Tiny Island, Many Stories” breathe new perspectives and invite you to connect with these timeless narratives, offering a glimpse into the island's history, culture and values from the Malay community.

Come up to Fort Canning Centre today to visit the Tiny Islands, Many Stories exhibition!


Join us on 15 June 2024 for "Tales from the Nusantara: Badang the Mighty" at Fort Canning Centre! The programme is organised by the Malay Heritage Centre. For more details, please visit Tales from the Nusantara: Badang the Mighty | Peatix
