St. Andrews Cathedral
The striking neo-Gothic St. Andrews Cathedral just behind the Padang on a generous plot of land was built by convict labor from India, with the first service held in 1861. It was the second incarnation of the Anglican church, the first was built in the 1830s and boasted a bell from Paul Revere’s bell foundry in Boston; it’s the only Revere Bell out side of the US and today its displayed at the National Museum of Singapore. The bright white exteriors of St. Andrews come from a Madras chunam plaster finish popular at the time (made from a mixture of eggwhite, shell lime and sugar). Have a look at the three stained glass windows in the apse, one of which is dedicated to Stamford Raffles.
