In celebration of Singapore's 56th birthday, Seven historically and culturally significant buildings in the Bras Basah Bugis precinct will be lit in the red and white of the national flag.
From 1-31 August, these seven buildings will be lit from 7:30pm to 12am daily:

Built in 1843, the Cathedral of Good Shepherd is the oldest Catholic Church in Singapore.
