Wallich Street, Singapore

Start here
Wallich Street is one of the smaller streets in downtown Singapore. Located in Tanjong Pagar, it runs from Maxwell Road in the east to Tanjong Pagar Road in the west. In between it intersects with Peck Seah Street.

Wallich Street was named after Danish botanist Nathaniel Wallich (1785-1854) in 1899. Wallich was instrumental in setting up the first botanical garden in Singapore, located on the slopes of Fort Canning, where the Spice Garden is located today. He also worked on classifying the local plantlife.

In honour of his contribution to Singapore, Raffles also had Mount Wallich named after him. The hill was eventually flattened when its soil was used in the 1907 Telok Ayer Reclamation Scheme that created the Shenton Way area.
