Singapore Botanic Gardens

Singapore Botanic Garden
Singapore Botanic Gardens has been around for over 150 years. From an ornamental garden with roads, terraces, a band parade area and even a small zoo, it has come a long way in evolving into a leading equatorial botanic garden of 74 hectares, where major world crops, such as rubber and orchids were launched. The gardens are the first UNESCO World Heritage site for Singapore.
Both postcard and stamp showing the bandstand on Lawrence Niven's parade ground. Probably one of the largest stamps in the world!      thx SL!
