St Andrew's Cathedral

11 St Andrew's Rd, Singapore 178959 Phone: (65) 6337 6104 Timings: Mon to Sat 9am – 5pm


Situated in the Civic District, the St Andrew's Cathedral is the largest and first Anglican Church in Singapore. Designed by Colonel Ronald McPherson in a Neo-Gothic style, the current St Andrew's Cathedral was built in 1857 after the original building was damaged by two lightning strikes. 

Walk into the cathedral via its arched entrance and you'll see three multi-coloured stained glass windows that fill the apse (or the recess of a half-dome). Each one dedicated to an important person in local history, Sir Stamford Raffles' panel sits in the middle. And if you'd like to learn more about the cathedral's history, take a walk over to the visitor's centre for artefacts and more.

It's no wonder why St Andrew's Cathedral is one of Singapore's most treasured works of architecture. Gazetted as a national monument on 1973, you'll stand in awe at its majestic facade, with extended pinnacles and a glossy white exterior.
