I did not see much in Georgetown to take a picture of, but the Cathedral was quite interesting. We walked in during a service and were politely -- and quite understandably -- shown the door, but well worth a visit if you are in Georgetown.

Refreshing to see ancient architecture from the 1800s. All wooden with plaques of former colonial managers. Currently undergoing maintenance, nice sight seeing while you're in the CBD.

Although under construction, the wooden cathedral has gravitas and its awe-inspiring architectural presence is completely captivating. Attending a service is a must but even if you cannot, please leave a goodwill donation to support the renovation.

Under construction when we visited, but it is an amazing architectural feat, I think. A church service was just starting when we arrive so we stayed with the very friendly congregation while marveling at the beautiful structure.

There is restoration work being done on the outside of the building but don't let that deter you from going inside. The wood ceilings are beautiful and the stained glass is worth a stop.

From the outside the building is in desperate need of restoration but it has commenced on one side, and will look fantastic once completed. Inside it appears to be in great shape and is really beautiful and well worth a short visit and to make...More

The oldest and largest wooden structure. Very interesting if for nothing else but the historical factor. Not really much to see, interesting.
