  • Beautiful architecture on outside & inside. Very pleasant, green perimeter w/ trees & paths & benches to get a respite form the crowds & noise of Yangon 
  • Cathedral Christian brick with beautiful stained glass, to visit on the way to the market. A little stark after the visit of the pagodas.

  • 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.
