Tranquil sanctuary from the heat and traffic of Merdeka Square. Constructed around the 1890s in plain style for use by the British community. Various plaques around the walls include in honour of various British government officials and servicemen during the last century. Whitewash walls and numerous windows give a bright, airy atmosphere to the cathedral with modern cooling for the... More

I took the Hop On Hop Off Bus and we passed by the St. Mary's Cathedral. Considering the heavy traffic in Kuala Lumpur I decided to give this a miss.

There are many busy and seemingly thriving annexes to the main worshipping church, which is spiritually quiet and offers a chance to reflect and pray. Located overlooking the old cricket ground, Royal Selangor Club, former High Court and Railway Station…the... More

If you are visiting Merdeka Square, you can pop into this quaint little colonial cathedral. It's a beautiful building and like taking a step back in time. When I visited, I think they were preparing for a wedding, the decorations were gorgeous. It won't take up much of your time, but worth popping in to see a piece of history... More
