Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Beautiful cathedral not too far from the Merlion Park, it was a nice walk in this area, worth the stop and some peace and quiet inside to enjoy the historical church.

    There was some construction around the perimeter, so it took us a minute to find the entrance in. We walked right by the car entrance gate. We enjoyed the stained glass work inside, as well as the beautiful arch entrance.

    Near the entrance there was a really nice and clean restroom facility. Definitely worth our brief visit.

    Novena Church stands as a testament to timeless beauty and remarkable architecture. Its awe-inspiring design captivates visitors from all walks of life, offering a serene haven for reflection and prayer.

    The graceful arches and intricate details of Novena Church's architecture are a sight to behold, evoking a sense of wonder and reverence. Its so big and each element seems to tell a story of faith and devotion, inviting all who enter to experience a profound sense of peace and tranquility.

    As one steps through its doors, they are greeted by a sacred space that transcends the ordinary, fostering a deep connection to something greater than oneself. Whether seeking solace in times of need or simply marveling at the architectural marvel before them, visitors cannot help but be moved by the beauty of Novena Church.

    It is a place where the spirit soars and the soul finds solace, a sanctuary of beauty and grace in the heart of the city. Novena Church is more than just a building; it is a symbol of hope, faith, and the enduring power of human creativity. Love Novena!

    At the base of Ft. Canning hill in the colonial district you will find the oldest church in Singapore just edging out St. Andrews. Built in 1835 shortly after the creation of Singapore, it is an Armenian Church and built in Greek revival style, beautifully painted clean, white. Its exterior looks like so many early 19th Century churches in the US. However, inside it is a very interesting circular nave and sanctuary, still in a very historic setting. While we peeked in we could not take pictures due to an event. However it is a great structure to visit. Exterior alone is beautiful.

    Another church, another wedding, but unlike St Peter and Paul's, we could not gain admittance to the interior. The building dates to 1843 when the cornerstone was blessed and was consecrated in 1847, built in what was known as restrained Renaissance style with a Palladian portico. the steeple is based on Ionic style with a window on each face. It was elevated to cathedral status in 1888 and is the seat of the Archbishop. Various additions were made in ensuing years, and it underwent a major structural restoration in 2016. The grounds have a sculpture of 'Homeless Jesus' by Canadian artist Timothy Schmalz. Elsewhere on the grounds are statues of Pope John Paul 11 and Saint Laurent Imbert, and the remnant of an earlier cathedral column plus various interpretative signage.

    The church dates to 1869 and has undergone various transformations since being consecrated but the most recent in 2016 restored various features of the neoclassical architecture. A wedding ceremony was underway when we visited and we were privileged to be welcomed and witness part of the proceedings. The entrance is flanked by statues of Saints Peter and Paul, the interior with arched ceiling directs your gaze through the nave to the altar and sanctuary. An addition, the Chapel of the Incarnation was by the Apostolic Nuncio in 2021, the 151st anniversary of the founding of the parish.

    I went to mass here in October 2019. I had attended mass here twice in 2016. The Church of Our Lady of Lourdes has Saturday evening mass at 6 pm and 7:30 pm. I went to the 7:30 pm mass. The church has made some improvements since my last visit three years ago. There is air conditioning now. And there are screens with the words of prayers and songs. It was a very good experience. You can reach the church by taking the MRT to Rocher and then walking on Ophir Road.

    I attended the 8pm Penitential Service in this Church in town about a week before Christmas 2018. It’s conveniently located near 2 MRT stations, namely, Fort Canning and Dhoby Ghaut MRT stations.

    Years ago my parents brought my 3 brothers and I to attend Sunday Masses in this Church because we lived nearby. Since a number of years ago, the Church was renovated and I found it beautifully transformed. It’s worth a visit if you are in the vicinity.

    A very nice Catholic Church located just beside a Chinese temple. Very serene and peaceful inside the compound. There’s a bell tower which the bell will be strike every hour. Interesting and beautiful architecture.

    I love to visit various kind of church. After visiting National Museum Singapore, along the road to Fort Canning Park, you will see this church! It is one of the oldest Methodist church in Singapore, which survived after WWII. The interior of the sanctuary is stunning, all wooden decor and the spiritual ambience, it is just a wonderful place to worship. Solemn. WOW.

    I often like to stop into the smaller churches from the last century when I travel. This was a nice one just near the Dhoby Ghaut MRT station. It is on the way to Fort Canning Park

    St. George's became a civilian church after the British troops left Singapore in 1971. It was gazetted a national monument by the National Heritage Board of Singapore on 10 November 1978.
    The red brick building has a unique and beautiful architecture with many windows with timber louvres and open arch windows. it is non air-conditioned and has a high ceiling ensuring good ventilation. The hand sewn cross-stitched cushions placed behind the long benches are lovely and consist of many different designs. It is a calm, serene and peaceful building. It is opened in the daytime.
    The lychgate in front of the church is a replica of the one that was put up in 1952. There are two benches inside the gate. The lychgate is made of timber with a tiled roof.

    This church was listed in the Vagabond Hotel walking tour of Little India. It was small and if you have time, good for a short visit. One the few pipe organs in Singapore was located inside and most likely played during masses.

    It was close to the Jelan Besar MRT Station.
