Having walked past this cathedral many times over the past few years I finally took the opportunity to go inside and have a look. The design is fairly simple with only a few more interesting stained glass windows. Still interesting to see but definitely a simpler design than you get in Europe.

Situated in the midst of the hustle and bustle of downtown Singapore, St Andrew's provides a bit of peace, quiet and respite. Entry is free and you can spend some time reading the plaques of notables that have served the community in a bygone era. History comes to life as you read and recognise the names of governors, civil servants,... More

A well preserved Anglican church and a tranquil refuge/rest stop. A place to rest tired feet and to enjoy a bout of cool air is the Cathedral Welcome Centre where the happenings of the week can be found and noticeboards telling of the daily events. Mondays are clergy off days so if you wish to attend a service, do go... More

This church is architecturally beautiful - the blinding white Neo-gothic building sits comfortably amongst the modern Singapore skyline. The sprawling grounds are most pleasant. I took a seat at one of the pews adjacent to an open window - looking out the window there was lush tropical foliage while inside was the subdued grandeur of the soaring ceiling and colorful...

A nice old church in the heart of the city. Although it's ruined a bit by all the flat panels in the church. Interesting to see the building style. Makes for some nice photos outside and a quick stroll. Tip You can essentially do a walk-by. It won't take you long to visit. From here you can walk on to... More

Stunning white chuch in a wide green yard. The church is well preserved. The old church is connected with the new contemporary building with one amphitheater in between. Everytime I visit this place, I can feel the calming atmosphere. If you explore further, you can enjoy the rare church interior. The gothic era building typology with the high ceiling, arch,...

The cathedral in the colonial area of Singapore is eye catching and extremely well maintained. It is free to have a look in the peaceful interior and a great photo opportunity for some western architecture in South East Asia. Well worth a quick look inside when having a stroll around Singapore.

Easily accessible by train (the station is right in front of it) it's a wonderful visit for the faithful. Clean, peaceful architecture. The embroidered kneeled in different patterns were adorable. Not a "must" for Singaoore, but a wonderful, welcoming place to visit.

There are many beautiful churches in Singapore, create a route of them for a few days and enjoy the architecture and the peaceful atmosphere.

Very pretty cathedral, the largest church in Singapore. The stained glass and blue walls are quite picturesque and fit perfectly with the warmth and tropical vibe of Singapore. It gets a bit warm in here with only fans, but the stone at least stays cool. Cool site to explore in Singapore.
