The Top 10 Singapore Mythical Stones – Part 1

Singapore is geologically gifted with bountiful granite resources. There are many strangely shaped nature rocks scattered around. Perhaps as a matter of cultural practices, many such rocks do get mystified by the belief of Animism – life can be empowered into physical objects like natural woods and stones. This belief has escalated and become wide-spread to the extent of worship and fear of the sacredness of certain objects that people submit their faith to. Urban legends, interesting stories, rumours that sprung up from these stone objects mystified their histories and backgrounds. Mythical stones contain more than just their material composite of silicon. Each one carries a long history and rich stories, and witnesses changes perhaps from the beginning of time till today. SPI invites you to investigate into the amazing legends of these mythical stones, while at the same time trying to rationalize them with a sober mind through a process of factual research.
