SINGAPORE: Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Syed Sirajuddin Syed Putra Jamalullail arrived here yesterday morning for a three-day visit at the invitation of Singapore President S.R. Nathan. 

The special aircraft carrying the King and Raja Permaisuri Agong Tuanku Fauziah Tengku Abdul Rashid touched down at Changi Airport at about 10.30am after a short flight from the Husein Sastranegara Airport in Bandung, Indonesia. 

The King had earlier made a six-day visit to Indonesia.
