ETYMOLOGY
  • Bishan was previously home to the Kwong Wai Siew Peck San Theng cemetery (commonly known as the Peck San Theng cemetery) and Kampong San Teng. The Mandarin name “碧山” originated from the Peck San Theng cemetery. Peck San Theng is currently located at Bishan Lane.
  • In 1870, the Peck San Theng cemetery was established at Thomson Road by immigrants from Guangzhou, Huizhou and Zhaoqing in Guangdong Province China, with Boey Nam Sooi at the helm. The cemetery mainly served the Cantonese and Hakka communities.
  • In 1979, the Housing and Development Board (HDB) began development on Bishan new town. In the same year, the Peck San Theng cemetery was acquired by the government for future re-development.
  • In the 1980s, the HDB began the development of Kampong San Teng and Peck San Theng cemetery into the Bishan new town. As a result, Peck San Theng was shifted, while the residents of Kampong San Teng were also relocated to other areas.
