St. George's Church can be found nested under the shade of majestic mahogany trees on the corner of Farquhar Street and Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling. Founded by Reverend Robert Hutchings and built between 1817 and 1818 with funds from the East India Company, St. George's Church is the oldest Anglican church in Southeast Asia. With its Grecian columns, louvred doors and pitched roof, which was added in 1864 to withstand the tropical climate, St. George's architecture reflects Anglo-Indian and Georgian Palladian influences.
Visitors InfoVisiting Hours: Services held at 8.30am & 10.30am every Sunday. On weekdays, the church is open at the discretion of the caretaker.
