This is the black version of Raffles, located outside the Victoria Concert Hall. It is distinct from the white statue of Raffles which is located along the river. The 2 statues are quite similar in size and a quick visit to both should be sufficient.

Another statue from Singapore's Colonial Era. The significance of Sir Stamford Raffles was and remains very important in the establishment of Singapore, albeit the modern day success is no due doubt to its post colonial politicians who developed the Nation to what it is now....More

The statue is located right in front of Victoria Theatre & Memorial Hall. To get there from Merlion Park, you need to cross the Singapore River, either through Cavenagh Bridge (pedestrian-only) or Anderson Bridge.

An alternative to the white statue of Raffles. This is by the theatre near the Mer Lion park by the bay.
