#10 of 16 in Historic Sites in Honolulu
The Cathedral Church of Saint Andrew, also commonly known as St. Andrew's Cathedral, is a cathedral of the Episcopal Church in the United States located in the State of Hawaii. Originally the seat of the Anglican Church of Hawaii, it is now the home of the bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Hawaii. It is affiliated with St. Andrew's Schools, which comprises of the main girls' K-12 school, the coeducational Queen Emma Preschool and a boys' preparatory school (elementary).HistoryKamehameha IV and Queen Emma, his queen consort, were devout members of the Church of England led by their good friend Queen Victoria. At their request, Thomas Nettleship Staley was appointed bishop in 1862. Inspired to build a place of worship in the Anglican tradition, Kamehameha IV commissioned the construction of what would later become the Cathedral of Saint Andrew. However, the king died on the feast day of Saint Andrew in 1863 before ground-breaking. Kamehameha V, the king's brother, took over the project and laid the cornerstone in honor of his predecessor on March 5, 1867. The cathedral was designed by the London architects William Slater and R. H. Carpenter, and the building process was overseen by their chief assistant Benjamin Ingelow.

  • I came with a Hawaii State Art Museum. Seems that the Cathedral in the Gothic style in Hawaii only, built by the Royal family. Stained-glass Windows in the entrance hall is a masterpiece! Lol well it takes Jesus to surf carefully and there are maybe 5 minutes lol Iolani Palace are close, so come in the set is a good idea.

  • I attended a friend's wedding. In a very large church stained-glass Windows are extremely impressive Chapel. Expression in the NG-photography and can take pictures. Far from present seat of the bride and groom and family and didn't hear the pastor's voice up there. Hawaii figurine Royals of the Kamehameha dynasty being used elsewhere feel the femininity, feel the fusion of cultural facilities. Attend your fabulous wedding, wasn't impressed.

  • A wonderful Church in Honolulu. Can you connect to the visit of the Palace, but you should always try to attend a concert. The Hawaiian adjustments (subjects in addition to the hymnal, fans on the ceiling, name badges at the entrance and a schattenspendendes tent at the entrance) are interesting.

  • great place free admission beautiful inside and outside. i only caught on fire twice an my eyes finally stopped bleeding once i got back in car
  • Great architecture free to walk in. Worth a stop if you're near by. Free
  • The Cathedral boasts 8 tower change ringing bells that were a redundant set in England. Experienced ringers are always welcome. The Aeolian Skinner pipe organ's 133 ranks are approximately one third Walker digital which are seamlessly integrated into the sound. Services have varied over the years anywhere from traditional "middle of the road" Episcopal to fairly high church with many chanted prayers. The church has an excellent choir which sings classic choral literature. The church bulletins are informative and will guide you through the services. There is a monthly Choral Evensong Sertvice which is almost all sung. It's on my "must see" list whenever I'm in Honolulu.
  • Very beautiful both inside and outside.
  • Beautiful place with it's deep roots in Hawaiian History.

Where to stay in Honolulu

Most of Honolulu's luxury hotels and oceanfront condos are located in Waikiki, the city's most popular neighborhood. Staying in this area keeps you within walking distance of one of the world's finest beaches, but it also means paying a bundle for your room and board. To avoid high rates and big crowds, consider the budget hotels outside Waikiki's busiest areas. Smaller hotels just a short drive from the city's beaches offer comfortable rooms and good food at a fraction of the price of their Waikiki equivalents.
