Saint Andrew Cathedral is the largest cathedral and the most elegant in Singapore. It consists of arched windows of Gothic style. The atmosphere inside is affected by the mosaic, creating a holy atmosphere in Gothic style. There is an apse at the back, which is decorated with three long mirrors called “Three Sisters”. This is very common in Gothic art of Bristish and French styles.
