Kusu Island is one of the Southern Islands in Singapore, it is located about 5.6 kilometers to the south of the main island of Singapore. The name Kusu means "Tortoise" or "Turtle" in Chinese while the island is also known as Peak Island or Pulau Tembakul in Malay. From two tiny outcrops on a reef, this island was enlarged and transformed into an island holiday resort of 85,000 square meters as it is today.

At the top of the rugged hillock on Kusu Island stands three kramats which are also known to be the holy shrines of Malay saints, in order to commemorate a pious man named Syed Abdul Rahman, his mother Nenek Ghalib and sister Puteri Fatimah who lived in the 19th century. Many devotees will climb the 152 steps leading to the kramats to pray for wealth, good marriage, good health and harmony. The shrines are also popular with childless couples who would pray for children. On the eleventh month of the lunar calendar, nearly 90 thousands devotees will pay their respects by going over to the island and praying to the different deities and kramats.
