St Andrew's Cathedral

Loves: The serenity and peace of this national monument in the city centre. 

Our Advice: Services are open to the public and held mostly on Sundays, with various languages available (more details in the website).

The hallowed halls of the St. Andrew’s Cathedral resonate with a sense of quiet and peace that can be hard to find in our ever-busy lives. Singapore’s largest cathedral offers a peek into the architecture and heritage of the colonial era. An interesting tidbit about this holy church is that it was used as a make-shift hospital during World War II.

The towering white cathedrals allows everyone to enter its chambers and take a trip through memory lane, in the form of memorial and decorations. Do not miss the stained glass windows in the apse, dedicated to the founders and architects of modern Singapore.
