Description Since the early nineteenth century, The Terrace Garden at Telok Blangah Hill has long been a place of gathering for trading communities which flourished. The prosperity of the traders is represented by the Alkaff Mansion, an elegant colonial bungalow built by an Arab trader and is previously a place for grand parties of the social elite. The Alkaff Mansion was abandoned after World War II and the Mansion went into a state of disrepair. In 1986 the Singapore Tourist Promotion Board became interested in the Mansion and restore it to to become a restaurant. In 2003 it was abandon again till today.
