“absolutely gorgeous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

the cathedral is well maintained and from the outside, feels like it has not changed a brick since it was built. It is very warm inside, therefore if you are attending service, best dress cooly.

“A Hidden Gem in the Bustling Yangon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

The cathedral is beautiful both inside and outside - the exterior is already eye-catching, and when you're inside, it's even more stunning.

You won't believe that you're in Yangon when you're inside of the cathedral, it just feels as though you're in some European country. Truly a serene and quiet spot to relax.

“Beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

A very beautiful church. It also appeared to be one of the better maintained structures in Yangon. Apparently, it has been recently refurbished.

“Interesting architecture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

One of two large churches in Yangon with interesting white roofs and brick wall architectures. Great spot for picture enthusiasts and a nice juxtapose to the overwhelming number of pagodas.
