St. Andrew Cathedral 圣安德烈大教堂 ...



Is Singapore's largest Cathedral. It is located near the 
City Hall MRT Station very near to the Central Business Districts ...
It is the Cathedral church of the Anglican Diocese of Singapore and 
the mother church of her 26 parishes and more than 55 congregations here.

The church has almost 180 years of history dating back to 1835 ...
It survived the Japanese occupation during the WWII as a Hospital ...

I love the way my eye moves between all this gorgeous architecture that you captured so beautifully. I see the shapes and the light, and imagine being there.

Carolina Tavares said...

Beautiful pictures. What does cathedral? What does capture (shooting) a cathedral? Cathedral is only one type of architecture or construction of the cathedral is the human in it?

I like very much this architecture and its snow- white. Did you employ wide-angle lens?

"Is Singapore's largest Cathedral."

And we Europeans have to make do with one cathedral per city! This one looks great to photograph, though — with those sweeping stairs and ornate turrets.
