Would anyone happen to know when there would be a Change of Guards Ceremony outside the Istana?
Is it still every first Sunday of the month?

:-D

March off from Heeren area is usually 5.30pm. Reach Istana will be around 5.45-5.50pm. Show goes on till about 6 plus. But subjected to changes due to weather etc.

No worries. For more clarification there'll be two boards that will be placed outside the istana at approx 5pm on that day itself providing all the information about the parade that you need.

The COG is made up of the following segments.

1) Istana guards in ceremonial uniform take up position at the entrance.

2) 'New" Istana guards march in accompanied by the provost unit precision drill squad & SAF band.

3) Change of guards procedures commences. This will be followed by a show from the precision drill squad... goes on for about 10 mins I think. I think this is the highlight for photog.

be forwarned, the above information was correct about 3yrs ago. I have not gone to the Istana to watch the COG for a longwhile already. I doubt there's much changes though..

Hope this helps :cool:
