(Video) Once Occupied By The Sultan of Johor, This Is The ‘Istana Woodneuk’

Published

on

Istana Woodneuk is located in the deep woods of the Holland Road and Tyersall Road area in Singapore. It was once occupied by the Sultan of Johor, but now remains empty and covered in vegetation and decay. This historic mansion was built in the late 19th century by a wealthy sultan who wanted to gift the magnificent residence to his fourth wife. Years passed and this saw the mansion handed down to one of the sultan’s sons. He performed extensive renovations on the property before gifting it to his Scottish-born wife.

This grand old mansion was to serve a far more important purpose than simply a residence for a wealthy family. As WWII rolled around and Singapore was occupied by the Japanese, the mansion was converted to be used as both a General’s Headquarters and a military hospital. Many wounded and sick people were treated within the Istana Woodneuk Mansion, but a bombing in 1942 saw a massive surge in casualties. It is estimated that around 700 lives were lost within the property during this dark moment in history.

Given the history and amount of death experienced within the building, it makes sense that many consider the mansion to be haunted. However, there are some darker aspects to the mansion’s past that have further solidified these beliefs. The Istana Woodneuk certainly fits the description of a haunted mansion. Well hidden, dark, overgrown, and sporting a crumbling façade covered in sinister graffiti. Yet, it is the history of the house lends weight to its spooky legends.

Since a fire ravaged the building in 2006 much of its structure was destroyed. This event has further increased deterioration and an onslaught of vandalism. Many of the surfaces of the building are now covered in dark symbolism, including graffiti featuring upside-down crosses, the number 666, and many other ‘Satanic-type’ symbolism. It is difficult to say whether this is the reason for the many rumors that the mansion is a hotbed for Satanists to perform dark rituals, yet the rumors are prevalent.
