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.

St Andrew's Cathedral, once a prominent landmark in central Singapore City, is now dwarfed by the surrounding skyscrapers of Singapore's financial district. But its all-white exterior catches your attention as you drive or walk past on St Andrews Road. The original St Andrew's Church was built in 1835 and the second was built in 1842. It was demolished in 1855... More

This cathedral is symbolic of the British Colonial era built in 1856, and is the place of worship of the Diocese of Singapore - part of the Anglican Church. It is easily reached from City Hall MRT - from which it is just a one minute walk. It boasts very nice stained glass. one of the windows bears the arms... More

Happened across this beautiful church in the heart of the city. Magnificent stain glassed windows, polished timber pews and fans oscillating to cool down church goers. Many locals were picnicking outside on little mats giving the place a lovely community feeling about it. Very picturesque.

Located just beside City Hall MRT. St Andrew's has very nice architecture and we saw two couples taking wedding photos. Take some time to visit the interior as it is just as beautiful inside. We spent some time inside just feeling relaxed and basking in the peacefulness.

The Cathedral is but a complex of stone and masonry. Conceptualizing, designing and building such a beautiful structure requires inspiration, dedication and passion. The faithful see beyond the Crucifix, The Altar, The Pews. They have Heaven on their minds. Spiritual yearnings outlive and outshine physical structures no matter how lovingly or artistically they were made. Maintenance and upkeep make for... More

Unfortunately was not impressed with this place, we stopped by on our way to lunch and found it run down. The grounds look like they have not had their grass cut in years and the whole cathedral looks like it has seen better days. Difficult to also get into if you don’t see the entrance.

From outside, the cathedral is very beautiful. Inside things get weird. There was some kind of café, vending machines and the church itself was stuffed with fans, air conditioners and tv screens. Decorations and ornaments are very simple.

My father was posted to Sigapore in the eary 50s whilst in the RAF. I visited the cathedral because I'm sure he would have attended. It was a moment of reminiscence for me while I read/hummed his favourite hymn and thought of younger days. So glad to have easy access. My thanks to St Andrew's.

Physical churches where established for people of God to worship. I was fortunate to visit the Singapore’s most famous church. I was awed by the grandeur and elegant facade of the church. The simplicity of the interior made me pray and kneel before God. Thank you was not enough considering that this was my second time to visit Singapore. Singapore... More
