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

Worth popping into during your visit to Merdeka Square just to see another typically British building in an Asian context.

This a late (1894) British Colonial Cathedral in a Neo-Gothic style, It is attractive and has had some additions and not entirely successful renovations. Set in an area in the historic centre of town close to a number of important Colonial and Malaysian historic buildings.

When I think of cathedral I thought that it was huge and beautiful designs but when I went there for the first it was a small cathedral. Anyway the inside was good and it is located near the merdeka square.

This tiny cathedral is beautiful inside and outside. It is an ideal, quiet place to go and reflect on life, and its meanings, away from the hustle and bustle of KL.

When we went to Merdeka Square the taxi left us near this Cathedral and we decided to take a look but it was closed and there was a lot of construction materials around, so I guess it is been renovated. It looks a normal building from the outside and there were some cars parked around it. When we read Cathedral... More

Built in 1893 and consecrated in 1895, St Mary's Cathedral is located on Merdeka Square. It is the oldest Anglican Church in Kuala Lumpur and is the cathedral of the Diocese of West Malaysia of the Anglican Church. It depicts early English Gothic architecture. Worth a visit if you are around the area.

The cathedral located in Merdeka Square where there are plenty historical building. It's one of the oldest Anglican churches in the region. The architecture of the cathedral is English style. I think it's not attractive to be visited. Just I passed by the way while exploring the area.

A very peaceful place to visit from the bustle and heat from the city. A lovely church in a beautiful setting. Walk around and read the plaques that tell a small story of the history and parishioners who attended this church, including Queen Elizabeth.
