  • 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.

  • great church, must visit
  • It was closed when I tried to visit but looked good from the outside at least.
