  • This is a very beautiful cathedral located in downtown Yangon. Services are conducted in both Burmese and English and the whole building is very well preserved. It occupies quite a huge piece of land ...  more »
  • 很有特色的教堂就在佛寺的旁邊,感覺非常的不同而且很特別的氣氛。值得我們在外面拍攝,裡面還是沒有其他的佛寺還來的厲害。  more »

  • 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.
