St. John's Cathedral
Built in 1847, the Cathedral is the oldest Anglican Church in the Far East. It underwent an extension in 1873 and was converted into a clubhouse for the Japanese Imperial Army during the Japanese Occupation between 1942-1944. During this time, the building was damaged considerably, which led to its rebuilding after the Second World War. It was declared a historical monument in 1996. Apart from weekly services, the church now also runs a number of community and social services.
