The '''Holy Metropolis of Singapore''', headquartered in Singapore, is an [[eparchy]] of the [[Church of Constantinople]].  Currently vacant, this see was established in January 2008 to encompass India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Maldives Islands, Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan and Sri Lanka.
On [[January 9]], 2008, the Holy Synod of the [[Church of Constantinople]] decided to divide the western part of the [[Orthodox Metropolitanate of Hong Kong and Southeast Asia]] from the eastern part, thus forming the Holy Metropolis of Singapore which extends further west to encompass South Asia.  As yet, the metropolis has not had a bishop elected to lead it.
