It is located in the vicinity of Haw Par Villa, previously called Tiger Balm Gardens, hence its name.

History

When the Circle Line was initially planned, this station had been planned to open only when the surroundings is more developed. However, it opened with the rest of Stage 5 as there are enough developments in the vicinity.[1]

Art in Transit

The artwork featured in this station is Eroclamation by Tan Wee Lit, located on the lift shaft in the station. Inspired by traditional papercuts, the black-and-white artwork shows images of traditionally Chinese elements (such as a pagoda, archway and peonies) with pictures of heavy machinery (tractors, cranes, etc.) hidden in them. The former is a reference to the Chinese-themed attraction which this station is named after, and the latter is a commentary about how much the western side of Singapore is reclaimed land.[2] Keen eyes will also spot the tiger hiding among the peonies, a reference to the name "Tiger Balm Gardens".
