    Saint andrews cathedral.

    Saint Andrews church in Singapore.

    Saint Andrews cathedral is the largest cathedral in Singapore and dates back to 1835.
    It´s located right in the center of town just 100 meters from the famous Raffles hotel.
    It´s an anglican church and it´s bright white and quite a pretty building.
    You can really miss it as it´s on one of the streets that you tend to drive on when you pass through central Singapore.
    I am not a religious person myself so i prefer to see places like that just from the outside so i don´t disturb those who might be there for religious purposes, but it should also be very nice on the inside.

    In mid central Singapore at great free place is the St. Andrews Cathedral.
    In the tropical heat of the day just here is a good place to sit and to remember.

    If you sit a while at place and look around and see, at much seats are seen the old nameplates, mostly british, all remembering the at old colonial empire...
    Real interest to remember the history in Singapore in the last two centurys..
    In the photos see the view inside to east - with the neogotic windows and the coloured glasses

    Since some times, tourists will find outside at west part of St. Andrews a new office with informations & shop for souvenirs.

    Elegant St. Andrew's Cathedral near Padang

    On the other side of Padang you have beautiful St. Andrew's Cathedral. It reflects Singapore's British colonial history. It was built in 1835 - 1842. Legends say there were unhappy spirits because of which the cathedral was struck twice by lightening in 1845 and 1849. It was then closed in 1852 and then was demolished in 1855. After its reconstruction it again began its service in 1861. Today it is considered as one of the national monument of Singapore

    St Andrew's Cathedral, Downtown Singapore

    by SLLiew Written Sep 12, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This beautiful church is located right across Raffles City and provide fresh greenery and open space in downtown Singapore.

    It is an Anglican church with many active programs and you can check out the service times and events planned out in the website.

    According to records, this site was reserved by the Sir Stamford Raffles for a church. As the church was funded by Scottish merchants, it was named St. Andrew who is the Patron Saint of Scotland.

    The current Church building was consecrated in 1862.

    Here is St. Andrew’s Cathedral. Reportedly, the white color is derived from egg white, sugar, and shell lime. See my description of City Hall where I mention several historic buildings that are close to each other. If you are on a busy business trip, consider seeing this area before morning business meetings. You can see the area before other places open and it might take only 10 minutes if you hurry.

    St. Andrew's Cathedral

    Visiting church in another land for me as a Christian is like going on pilgrimages. I like looking at the amazing architecture and how it differs from Philippine churches and from other churches in other countries.

    First built by the British in 1834, the current structure was rebuilt in 1852 after a lightning strike. This was the main colonial church in Singapore.
