The site was chosen for a church by Sir Stamford Raffles in 1823 and the first service was conducted in 1837. After being struck twice by lightening it was declared unsafe and closed in 1852. The present building was consecrated in 1862 and became a cathedral in 1870. Lovely imposing cathedral shining white in the sun, quiet inside and not many tourists there when we visited. They had what looked a cafe on the grounds but we did not stop we were on our way to Raffles Hotel for high tea and easily walked from cathedral to the hotel. If you are in Singapore I would recommend a visit.
