Chijmes (pronounced “chimes”), an elegant walled complex of shops, restaurants, bars, and gallery spaces, was once the Convent of the Holy Infant Jesus priest in 1854 and run by nuns, the convent functioned as a school and a women’s refuge, as well as a home for babies who were abandoned at its gates. In 1983, when the convent was relocated to the suburbs, the buildings, including a school, a chapel and a private residence were redeveloped into what is now one of Singapore’s most beautiful public spaces.
Quiet courtyards, cobbled paths, fountains and covered Italianate walkways encircle shops that sell arts and crafts from China, the Philippines, Thailand, Malaysia and India, as well as restaurants that serve everything from sushi to tapas. The most striking building in the complex is the former chapel, designed in Neo-Gothic style by Jesuit priest Father Nain. Most of this historic building has been restored, including the beautiful 19th century stained glass windows. The chapel’s lofty columns are decorated with intricate plasterwork and it capped with magnificent spire. It is now Chijmes Hall, a venue for art exhibitions, recitals and weddings.
