【Church|教堂】St Andrew's Cathedral @ Singapore|新加坡圣安德烈座堂

November 29, 2013, Friday
After Marina Bay I felt so tired, wanted to look for a place to have a rest, so I looked through the Tripadvisor to check any possible place to rest, then I found this church, used to walk passed by while I was staying at my first hostel in Singapore, and I told myself I must go visit there some time....(so apparently it was the "some time" that I mean...and here I'm)
********************************************************************************
走完海滨湾后,是觉得非常的累。。。看看手机上的Tripadvisor还有什么介绍的地方。。。之前在我住的背包宿舍有经过这里,只是当时都是在赶时间,没有机会到里面走一走。。。

********************************************************************************
所以我就随着手机的GPS来到这教堂,其实我蛮喜欢拍教堂的,因为我很喜欢它的建筑风格,不一样的建筑外观,有些复古又有些欧洲的味道,现在应该很少会看到会有地产商会建这样的建筑吧!   圣安德烈教堂坐落在行政文化区,是新加坡首座也是规模最大的圣公会教堂。教堂曾遭受过两次雷击,而后由 Ronald McPherson 上校设计,于 1856 年建成,因此具有浓厚的新歌德式风格


Maybe it's because hard to find architect willing to build some like this, like those a bit retro style of church...
********************************************************************************
即使有,也许也会是很简单的建筑风格,不会有另一层次的风味!

这是它的侧面

Well, apparently it's open on Weekend only, so unfortunate that I didn't get a chance to see the inside...Umm, maybe next time in the future??

原来它只是星期日开放而已,所以我也都没有机会到里面参观一趟就这样走了。。。

  2. Love all these old churches in Singapore. One nice one is St Joseph's at Victoria Stree' so nice. Love the interior too. Not into the modern ones. Another one is the Church of the Holy Infant, Waterloo Street...but they've sold it, I think - now a nightspot, pub or something.

  4. The Chjmes is an old Convent school, opened at night only for makan.. korean and western food.. very sad that old convent schools have turn to entertaining pubs and stuff.. but one has to maintain the structure.. very nice architectural designs, those days the builders were very meticulous in their designs...

    1. Yah, now all the buildings are more towards to the high tech style, hardly see they build something like this anymore, plus the materials also hard to get nowadays!
