    Preservance of Monuments in Singapore

    Need of preserving monuments

    Monuments are the property of a nation as a whole and it is the responsibility of the nation and its citizens to safeguard and maintain them to live longer than their life. For every country, monuments form the most important part of preserving its ancient culture while promoting tourism around the world. Most of the monuments were built in ancient times and form the image of the country’s cultural, historic, traditional and archaeological importance and are of national significance. In Singapore, the preservation of monuments is officially done by the preservation of Monuments Board (PMB).

    The Preservation of Monuments Board (PMB)

    The Preservation of Monuments Board in Singapore is a national authority that is responsible to safeguard and preserve the national monuments of Singapore. This body was formed in 1971. The basic job of the PMB is to plan and research so as to extend the knowledge of the monuments to the visitors, while also helping to restore, preserve and protect the national monuments. While this is the basic work of the PMB, it also works towards promoting its monuments for tourism and increasing awareness among international and national tourists. It is also a responsibility of the Board to act as an advisory to the Government in matters that concern the preservation of the monuments. While the PMB does its regular job, it is also involved in identifying more monuments across the country which are worth preserving.

    The task

    Preservation of monuments is not an easy job for the PMB. The task of preservation involves lot of care as it is a matter of national importance and sentimental value. It is the responsibility of the board to make sure that the repair, maintenance and the restoration work is done carefully so as to not damage any of their historic or heritage value. An authority called the Monument Inspectorate was established a few years back by the government of Singapore to evaluate and monitor the state of the monuments. The inspectorate also needed to assist the PMB in advising and aiding for the conservation and repair of these historic structures. This task is done by appointing various departments so that the job is done to perfection. The job is divided based on the field of work such as operations, research and of maintaining an organized database. These jobs are done by monument inspectors and architectural consultants. The technical operations involve periodic visit and inspection of all monuments, technical support and consultancy in the restoration process and contingency inspection.

    Research for new monuments

    A lot of research is required for the job of preserving monuments in any country. In Singapore, a lot of care is taken while education is imparted to understand the importance of preservation. It is also important for the team to research potential monuments that can be considered for national importance. The research work involves understanding the story and its heritage value behind any potential structure.

    Government and People

    To restore any monument or historic building is a challenge for its nation and it involves lot of expertise, time and capital to maintain it. It also depends on the nation’s policy as to how much importance is given to its national heritage. Singapore and its people are lucky to have a government that supports its heritage and values the culture and significance of its origins. It is also important that along with the authorities, the people of the country cooperate in preserving their national treasure and take care that no harm is caused to their national property.

    There are numerous monuments in Singapore such as Caldwell House, numerous churches, synagogues, mosques, temples and museums. The efforts made by the government are really praiseworthy. Singapore knows the importance of its culture and strives to uphold it.
