Designed by municipal architect F D Meadows, the City Hall building was built between 1926 and 1929, and was originally known as the Municipal Building. The City Hall was the scene of many important events in the history of Singapore. It was here that Admiral Lord Louis Mountbatten accepted the surrender of the Japanese forces on behalf of the allied forces and the first Prime Minister of independent Singapore, Mr Lee Kuan Yew and members of his Cabinet, took their Oaths of Allegiance and Oaths of Office.
