Fountain of Wealth, Suntec City
Marina Centre, Singapore

The Fountain of Wealth has ben accorded the status of "World's Largest Fountain" in the 1998 edition of the Guinness Book of Records.

The Fountain of Wealth, and in fact Suntec City as a whole, was constructed in accordance to feng shui principles. The fountain structure is made of bronze, and consists of a circular ring with a circumference of 66 metres supported on four 13.8 metres high bronze legs (85-tonne) and spreading over an area of 1683.07 metres. The base area of the fountain is 1,683 square metres. In the design plan of Suntec City, where the five tower blocks represent the fingers (four 45-storeys) and thumb (18-storeys high) of a left hand emerging from the ground, the fountain forms the palm of the hand, the inward flowing of water of the fountain symbolises the retention of wealth. Water is the symbol of life and wealth in Chinese culture.

The base of the fountain is located underground, and on its base perimeter lies the main basement restaurant area of Suntec City. The circular ring top of the fountain is visible at ground level. During certain periods of the day, the fountain is turned off and visitors are invited to walk around a mini fountain at the centre of the fountain's base for good luck. According to Fengshui masters, visitors who walk around the central base of the Suntec City Fountain of Wealth 3 times while touching the water would gain good luck. There is a small laser show at the Fountain of Wealth at night.
