It’s no wonder why St Andrew’s Cathedral is one of Singapore’s most treasured works of architecture. Gazetted as a national monument on 1973, you’ll stand in awe at its majestic facade, with extended pinnacles and a glossy white exterior.

This fairly big, white church with a nice lawn beside is something worth stopping by for a few snapshots outside on the grounds. The inside though, I would say, is quite ordinary except for the tall, stained-glass windows behind the altar; there are no intricate carvings or statues of saints or anything like those here that I found quite commonly...

St Andrew's Cathedral is a traditional Anglican Church located outside Raffles City Shopping Centre. It has some new buildings as part of the complex and has an active christian community. Very friendly and a nice way to escape the hussle and bussle of Singapore.

This church is my favourite quiet-time spot, though i do not belong to its congregation. I spend hours here whenever i have time to spare, just to sit in and enjoy some peace and quiet, sometimes also to read the bible. The bible has dual translations, in English and chinese. If you are religious, you can worship as long as... More

A typical Colonial Gothic Revival Church built in 1862. Not as elegant as some of the earlier Colonial Indian Cathedrals but a formidable Anglican structure in the heart of the colonial area. The grounds of the church serve as kind of a park and the area is frequented by many people looking for a quiet place to sit.

It i s a gerat place to pop in for a moment of silence or prayer. Escaping the city rush. The architecture of the church is unique and interesting to discover. Information about the church history is provided in small leaflets available at the side entrances. Regretfully, to my taste, the place appears overloaded with fans, monitors, speakers and other...

I don't know if this is the only white Victorian Gothic cathedral in the world, but it's certainly the only one I have ever seen, and quite a sight it is too. It's very well kept, and, along with Raffles and Chijmes nearby, a well-preserved monument to another age before Singapore adopted retail as its principal religion. It's a bit... More

We stayed at The Residence at Singapore Recreation Club on Connaught Drive which is only a couple of minutes walk from St Andrews cathedral. The cathedral is amazing both inside and out, well worth a look. I am not in any way religious but I like good architecture including cathedrals, temples (such as Sri Mariamman Temple) and mosques (check out... More

This cathedral is located right in the adminstrative center of the city, just beside the Supreme Court and is just beside the City Hall MRT station. It is very crowded on weekends and you could see many of our Indonesian and Filipino domestic workers congregating in the compound catching up with one another and attending the Sunday services. This is... More
