St Andrew's Cathedral, Singapore

4.0
Tall, elegant spires and a long, grand nave lined with white arches await you at St Andrew's Cathedral. This Neo-Gothic, Anglican cathedral is the country's largest, originally built in 1836. The cathedral was twice rebuilt in its history, the second time due to irreparable damage after being twice hit by lightning. The cathedral is home to three large, stained-glass installations that stand out against the stark overall whiteness. Free, guided tours are offered when services are not in session; during these tours volunteers delve into the cathedral's rich history and intricacies.

  • St. Andrew's Cathedral, founded in 1823, is one of the oldest churches in Singapore, and in the clear sky, it will find that the church seems to be beautiful with pearly white light. Come in time to meet a new person in the church to practice marriage, so the way into the inside, but look inside, but also can feel the atmosphere of God.

  • The Katederal St. Andrew is a British colonial style. Very nice to photograph. To get here, simply take the MRT and get off at City Hall station.

  • A large church It might not be uncommon for a church of this size to be in Europe, but it was very fresh because it Japan few. The building itself is white and the surroundings are square.

  • Beautiful church in the center of Singapore! The church itself is really well maintained and the exterior is really clean too! The place is generally very quiet and it is really peaceful to just sit down outside the church and take a rest!
  • If you want to find a church to pray, I recommend this church. Centrally located. Near City Hall MRT station.
  • This is one of the oldest church in Singapore so this church must have a long history. It seems that this place is also one of favorite places for taking pre-wedding pictures. When I was here there were two couples taking photoshoots.
  • Nice clean Catholic Church. Easy to walk to. Clean toilets. Wasn’t able to go to mass. On the way to the museums up the road.
  • An Anglican Cathedral in the middle of the city, it is the largest cathedral in Singapore and the oldest Anglican church in Singapore. It has a lust green grass park inside its ground. Conveniently can be reached by bus or MRT. The City Hall MRT station practically beneath the St.Andrew's foundation. It has a cafe near the exit B of the City Hall MRT station. The entrances are on the diagonal corner of the church (from the front of its main door). The usual opening hours is 8 am till 5 pm.
