There's a catholic church nearby to this red Dutch church. I think it's Portuguese in origin. Let me find some pics.

There's one more gothic influenced church in Brickfields, The Holy Rosary Church, also very pretty.

St. John's Cathedral, Kuala Lumpur.

That's a staggering thought! Amazing how your city must have changed since that time!

Thank you, gents, for this thread! I really appreciate it. I love churches, and it's just fascinating for me to see how Europeans built their churches far away from home and looking just like those in their own countries.

Too bad you're getting the effect, TYW!

The Wesley Church looks Anglican and has some red Chinese (?) writing beneath its roof cross. St. John's is primarily made of brick (I think) and has six wooden doors/entrances along the side of the church.
