In the vibrant metropolis of Kuala Lumpur stands the Cathedral of St. Mary the Virgin. Though this Anglican Church is not a high-rise building, it is one of the most prominent structures in the area. This church, which features English Gothic design, was first constructed as a wooden building on top of a hill now known as Bukit Aman. A new and larger church was built at the present site at Jalan Raja in 1894. Interesting features here include beautiful stained glass windows, tasselled tile paving and buttresses. Another unique attraction is the pipe organ built in 1895 by Henry Willis, regarded as one of the greatest organ builders of his day.

Getting there: Take the Putra LRT or STAR LRT to the. The cathedral is a 10-minute walk away and is situated beside the Royal Selangor Club.
