Background

Originally known as Telok Blangah Hill, Mount Faber Park was renamed in 1845 as a tribute to Captain Charles Edward Faber who first constructed a narrow road leading up to the summit for installing a signal station. There were plans of converting Mount Faber to a fort in 1857, just after the Sepoy Mutiny of India. However, work was stopped midway and the site never became a fort eventually. It was modernized with the accessibility improved by the introduction of a cable car system in 2005 which took the tourists right up to the highest point of Mount Faber. The visitors can enjoy a meal and drinks at the restaurants at the peak or enjoy a cocktail inside the cosy cabin of the cable car.
