St Mary’s Anglican Cathedral

Lonely Planet review

AC Norman is also responsible for the rather less florid St Mary’s Cathedral at the north end of the square. Looking every inch the whitewashed English country church, it was built in 1894 and it still maintains a small Anglican congregation. Inside is a fine pipe-organ dedicated to Sir Henry Gurney, the British high commissioner to Malaya, assassinated in 1951 during the Emergency.
