In the event of a road-block by the police, please politely inform the policeman that you are going to church and they ought to let you in. If you wish, you can also request for a car sign that would facilitate communication with police personnel.
The nearest LRT Station is Masjid Jamek on both the Putra and Star Lines. The Cathedral is within walking distance of the station. Please find detailed directions to the Cathedral here. Or you can ask someone to point the way to ‘Dataran Merdeka’.
Taxi drivers should know the Royal Selangor Club (Dataran Merdeka) as it is a landmark in Kuala Lumpur. The cathedral is beside the club – just across a small road.
The Cathedral Carpark is reserved for women travelling alone who may feel unsafe parking in the Dataran carpark, people with young children who would find it hard to cross the road with them, and those who are elderly, or suffering from illness or disability who would then find it hard to walk from the carpark across the road.
If you need to park at the Cathedral or the Royal Selangor Club on Sundays, please visit stmarys.my/booking to book a carpark. There is also an option for you to indicate on the form that you would like to book a parking spot for 6 months. Your car plate number will then be given to the guards. Please note that you will only be allowed in if your car plate number is on the list given to the guards.
Bookings for carparking will open at 2.00 pm on Sunday and close at noon on Friday.
