Fort Canning Command Centre

Fort Canning Command Centre comprises an underground fortress network of bunkers and tunnels. It was constructed in the late 1930s to serve as a combined command and control centre for the British and Allied forces in Malaya. During the Second World War, the Malaya Command planned its military operations in the command centre and it was also the site where Lieutenant-General Arthur Percival and his commanders ultimately decided to surrender Singapore to the Japanese on 15 February 1942.
