Jalan Kubor means “Cemetery Road” in Malay and the old cemetery there is indeed the oldest Muslim cemetery in Singapore. It dates back to 1852 and has designated areas for Malay and Indian Muslims. It also has a dedicated section for the members of the royal Johor-Riau family. Hence it is sometimes referred to as “Tombs of the Malayan Princes”.
A bit further away, near Marang Road at the slopes of Mount Faber there is another overgrown cemetery consisting of some 200 old, abandoned tombs. The stories of who these Marang Road graves belong to are a mystery, even to heritage researchers of the area like Mr Sarafian Salleh. (Source: Straitstimes)
