St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church located on Jalan Raja Chulan, Kuala Lumpur and not far from Telekom Museum. This church was the original Scottish planter’s church. It was built between 1917 and 1918 and opened for worship amid much colonial fanfare. The building of this church was originally opposed by Loke Chow Kit who wanted the land for a Chinese language school.

The church has the best church pipe organ in working condition. The Riddel-Eminent organ is a hybrid made up of components of the original 1939 Riddell organ married to the 1998 Eminent console by organ builder Mr Robert Navaratnam of Singapore.

In 1992, the St. Andrew’s Cross was installed. The Cross is a replica of an 18th century brass altar cross found in the ancient church of Llandyfrydog on a wind-swept western isle in Britain.

Church Of The Holy Rosary located on Jalan Tun Sambanthan, Brickfields, inspires with its Gothic architecture. It was built in 1903 by Reverend J.F. Lambert, a French missionary. The easiest way to get here is to travel along Jalan Cheng Lock which leads to Jalan Tun Sambanthan. The church is on the left after the flyover.

The church was actually founded in 1883 and main reason is to cater to the needs of the Christian Chinese community of that time. Today, all sermons and mass are conducted in both language of Mandarin and English.

The building is an arresting sight as it boasts of elaborate Gothic features. Both its sides are lined with stained-glass windows and there are Mandarin characters, a legacy of the influence of its early parishioners.
