Built in 1965 in the Western area of Singapore, the Thow Kwang Pottery Jungle is a quaint little place nestled in a farm, away from the usual tourist area of Singapore. A hidden gem of tourism in Singapore, it houses one of the oldest Dragon Kilns in Singapore, built in the 1940s.
36 meters long, this traditional kiln is shaped like a dragon and is built on a slope out of bricks. It is fired up a few times a year, and these occasions are widely celebrated in the Thow Kwang Pottery Jungle. Tourists and locals gather alike, to watch the firing up of this majestic Dragon Kiln, a process which can take up to 30 hours to be complete. Alongside the Dragon Kiln, the Thow Kwang Pottery Jungle also holds various types of pottery workshops. These workshops are fun and interesting and often involve a tour of the Dragon Kiln. They cater to both children and adults. An array of beautiful cups, pots, plates, vases, curios, ceramic kitsch and even furniture is sold by the Pottery Jungle, all available at very reasonable prices.
Set in a quiet, rustic atmosphere, this place is well worth a visit for anyone who wants to experience what Singapore used to be like before the trend of development and industrialisation set in. A cultural and historical landmark, the Thow Kwang Pottery Jungle will leave the visitor feeling refreshed and relaxed.
