Istana Woodneuk

This place used to be the house of the Sultan of Johore.

For the little history, this house was first built in 1854, and was known as "Tyersall House". In 1860, a Malay sultan took over the property and the house was demolished. The new house, Istana Woodneuk ("istana" means "palace" in Malay) was built in 1890 and completed 2 years later. In 1905, it was badly burnt because of faulty electrical wiring. This house has been abandoned since 1907.

Location: Singapore

A few of my friends decided to check this place out. And it is really sad to see such a beautiful place being left in ruins.

A box hangs precariously from the second floor.

The ceilings of the second floor has collapsed in, and so far, there's nothing left except a hive and wasps that has found a new home.
