  • Nice old church made of wood. Must place to visit when in Yangon, get to know a lot of history here.
  • It is the oldest church surviving in Yangon (1863), with tropical architecture combined with Gothic features
  • A must for any Armenian visitor to Yangon. The Armenians of Yangon built this church in 1862 on land presented to them by the King of Burma. In a now bygone era there were over a thousand Armenians in the city- such famous families as the Sarkies Brothers (who owned the Strand Hotel Yangon, and Raffles Singapore), as well as the Martin Family (AC Martin Engineering helped construct many of the colonial era buildings that still stand today). The church is open to visitors, and service is held every Sunday at 9.30am

Where to stay in Yangon (Rangoon)

It can be difficult to find decent budget accommodations in Yangon, especially downtown, where rooms are usually small and booked months in advance. Look farther away from the city center for cozier budget options, often with complimentary breakfast included. The Kandawgyi lakeside features a number of high-end establishments.
