St. Andrew's Cathedral, Singapore

If you're looking for a quiet sanctuary in the heart of Singapore, St. Andrew's Cathedral might just be the place for you. A few steps from the City Hall MRT station, St. Andrew's Cathedral provides a welcome relief from the hustle & bustle of central Singapore.

St Andrew’s Cathedral is the largest and first Anglican Church in Singapore, and was consecrated in 1870. Built in the Neo-Gothic architectural style, the architect is said to have drawn inspiration for aspects of the design from Netley Abbey, a ruined thirteenth century church in Hampshire, England.

Walk into the cathedral via its arched entrance and you’ll see three multi-coloured stained glass windows that fill the apse. Each one dedicated to an important person in local history: Sir Stamford Raffles, John Crawfurd and Major General William Butterworth. Unfortunately, a service was in progress, so I was unable to take any pictures of the inside of the cathedral.

Take a break from the malls on your next trip to Singapore and see a bit of the city’s history.
