Owner description: 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.

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,... More

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.

If you're not visiting during regular worship services, St. Andrew's Cathedral is a terrific place to simply rest, reflect and enjoy the silence. The sanctuary and surrounding grounds are beautiful.

It was nice to just sit among the few people and pray for a safe diving trip ahead. The arches and stained glass were awesome.

Took us a while to find a door we could actually get into! Not the most inspiring place of worship I've ever been in but they did have some beautiful flower arrangement.

Decided to attend this church Decided to attend for it's traditional English service. Found the church to be very striking in it's overwhelming white exterior. People are very friendly but not out to trap you as some church parishioners seem to do. Interior is again strikingly beautiful in a western way. Tall black ceiling, white trim, blue walls contrast with... More
