Description About MacRitchie ReservoirMacRitchie Reservoir (Chinese: , Pinyin: Malzh Xshuch) is Singapore's oldest reservoir. The reservoir was completed in 1868 by impounding water from an earth embankment, and was then known as the Impounding Reservoir or Thomson Reservoir. During World War II, the Japanese Imperial Army during the Japanese Occupation of Singapore built a Shinto Shrine,Syonan Jinja (120'53.94'N 10348'49.08'E), in the middle of the MacRitchie Reservoir forest in Singapore. When the British forces re-occupied Singapore, the Shrine was destroyed. However, ruins of the shrine remain and serve as a quaint piece of History accessible only to those willing to look for it, given its obscure location. The National Heritage Board declared the site a Historic Site in 2002.
