Saint Mary's Cathedral, Yangon (Rangoon)
(4.1/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
A towering red brick facade composed of two elegant spires and a central bell tower Saint Mary's Cathedral stands out as one of the largest cathedrals in Myanmar. Constructed over a 15-year period from 1895 to its consecration in 1910, the Catholic cathedral was designed by Dutch architect Joseph Cuypers. Enter past delicately painted statues to the ornately tiled interior of arches and stained glass, with the exterior surrounded by well-kept lawns dotted with leafy palms. Daily mass is conducted in English, as is the Sunday morning service.

  • 從外面,這看起來很不錯。它真正在周圍的其它建築物突出來了。這個教堂的內部也很漂亮,但它是不公開的。我建議你在教堂外面拍照。 
  • 市中心剛先開始建現代嘅建築,包括寫字樓,酒店,百貨公司等,但這個教堂已經經過過千年嘅洗禮,仍然屹立不倒!個中包括二戰、地震、颱風,亦冇太大嘅破壞。注意嘅係,教堂唔係每一日都開放俾遊客參觀,裏面亦唔可以影相,我去當日咁好彩早上有婚禮舉行,工人係度做清潔中,俾我入去參觀加影相! 
  • We drove past it's why we visited. It is surprising to see a church and Christian images, but there is nothing special in this Cathedral.

  • A very beautiful church, it is worth to visit here in yangon. In additional to visiting pagoda church site seeing is also a good choice in Yangon. The towers were under renovation during my visit, but that didnt stop the charm of the church.
  • Nice brick details and stained glass widows all round. Nice spot for photographs and the peaceful inside feel so good place.
  • Clean restrooms outside the church if you need a restroom break. Also a nice way to break up a day of sightseeing pagodas & temples.
  • great church, must visit
  • It was closed when I tried to visit but looked good from the outside at least.
