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.

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

In Singapore, there are just a few "attractions" that are free...absolutely no admission charges! If you would like to visit this beautiful, elegant and historic building, go to the Welcome Centre just next to the City Hall exit and ask for a free guided tour. You will be briefed on the history of Singapore and her link to this 150+... More

No lover of cathedrals can visit Singapore without visiting St Andrew's. Set in its own city block and surrounded by trees, it stands out as a white beacon. In fact, the exterior with its many towers and expansive transepts is probably more impressive than the interior. Coming inside, it is a surprise that the transepts make no appearance in the...

In terms of Cathedral's this one is not all that big. We went on a Sunday and were able to peek a look inside during worship - and it was not as impressive as I had been led to believe. The grounds around are also in need of some maintenance.
