CHIJMES

Chijmes was once the Convent of the Holy Infant Jesus established in 1854 by a Frenchman. In 1983, the nuns left this Catholic convent and the seat of education for generations of Singapore girls. After almost five and a half years of painstaking conservation and construction work, this Gothic complex was converted into a two tiered plaza of retail stores and F&B outlets along with ample outdoor spaces, cloistered walls and long walkways. At the rear is a sunken courtyard, which boasts of a beautiful landscape of cobblestone floors, fountains and shady trees.
