This is the largest andglican church in KL and is one of the oldest. The architect was A. Norman and was built in the 19th century. The congregation are very welcoming and the choir is very good. There are services midweek too. Some really interesting memorials and super pulpit.

Located at the head of the cricket field, St Mary's provides an insight of the past. Modest inside compared with some churches, but enough interest to spend half an hour. The church appears to have been extended at some time but this is seamless inside.

St. Mary's is an interesting building in terms of architecture and acoustics and the recently restored historic organ is an amazing piece of work from colonial times. You don't need to be Anglican or even Protestant to enjoy attending and giving the history of the place and the people who worshipped here over the centuries a thought.

I took the Hop On Hop Off Bus and we passed by the St. Mary's Cathedral. Considering the heavy traffic in Kuala Lumpur I decided to give this a miss.
