Located at Kampong Glam, Malay Heritage Centre is a popular venue for Malay weddings in Singapore. Gedung Kuning, meaning "Yellow Mansion" in Malay was probably built around the same period or slightly before the Istana Kampong Glam (present-day Malay Heritage Centre). Located next to the Malay heritage centre, Gedung Kuning was once part of a royal compound.
If you ever envisioned a royal-themed love celebration, a grand and elegant affair that will steal your guests' breath, we offer you the ideal venue for a wedding in Kampong Gelam, where your dream can come true.

The history of Gedung Kuning

Through the ages, Gedung Kuning, or the Yellow Mansion, served as a residence, government office, and even a museum. Today, Gedung Kuning is a popular tourist attraction known for its beautiful architecture and rich history. The yellow colour, the main characteristic of this magnificent venue for a Singapore wedding, is a historically symbolic royal colour commonly associated with Malay Sultans. The mansion was initially built to be the residence of the royal family's heirs, which is why it was painted yellow.
