Posted by: Sunny T in Church, Travel Add comments

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.
