A piece of land between Hill Street and North Bridge Road was allocated by Sir Stamford Raffles in his Town Plan of 1822 for the siting of an Anglican church, however, construction of the church did not begin until funds were raised by the community in 1834. The church was named Saint Andrew after the patron saint of Scotland in honour of the Scottish community who had donated to the building fund.

Originally constructed in 1832, the building was struck by lightning twice and demolished. The new cathedral was completed in 1862, in an English Gothic style and is Singapore’s largest cathedral with its majestic facades and a glossy white exterior.
