Armenian Church

Singapore's oldest church is dedicated to St. Gregory, the illuminator, the first Catholics, Head of Armenian Church.
It was built in 1835 and now is a national monument. It is regarded as colonial architect George Coleman's masterpiece.

Cathedral of Good Shepherd
Queen Street
The oldest Catholic church in Singapore, Cathedral is also the revered home of the present Archbishop. But when the church's foundation stone was initially laid in 1843, little people know that it would be the center of an architectural design showdown between colonial architect-greats, D.L. Sweeney and J.T. Thomson.
Thomson's design was eventually chosen even though it was considered more expensive than Sweeney's. Charles Dyce, a third architect, added a tower and spire to the design a year later. The cathedral was gazetted as a national monument on 28 June 1973.

St. Andrew Cathedral
