If you just want to see something beautiful, this place is not your best answer. It is big and quiet, just like a church should be.

This is right next door to Scott Market, Just walk out the front of the market and turn right (your back to the market building) and walk about a 100 yards and you will come to some trees shrouding a building.

Go into the first driveway and turn right following the little path some way up the drive and go into the main entrance to the building on the right. They will take you into the Cathedral. Do not try to enter by the main doors except at service times.

The building is a classic cruciform church of fine proportions and the stained glass windows in the chancel area are good. Look up to the timber roof.

The sad thing is that after the British 'left' (1946 or so) the building has gradually become in need of some maintenance. Stop, kneel in a pew if you desire (well you showed some reverence did you not at Schwe Dagon)? Talk to HIM about your life, where it is going and what is on your mind either giving thanks for the good things or telling him your hopes, desires and troubles.

Make the effort to go inside and expect HIM to recognise your pilgrimage.

A little tip. Ask HIM to give you a sign and answer in his own way as you know it is impossible without HIS help. Look at the centre stained glass window behind the altar.

Expect HIM to give you an answer in HIS way. I cannot explain it in words but you will know it is supernatural and when you have the answer you will know (certainty) then look back and remember that prayer.

Then go on your way and expect an answer...that is how faith works.

Why you are there spare a thought for the delightful Burmese Christians and make a donation as you see fit. Our Burmese 'cousins' definitely need a little financial help with this building. There were two large buckets on the floor to catch the raindrops!

Services on a Sunday at 7 a.m.; 8.30 a. m. and evensong at 4.p.m.

This place had the peace of Schwe Dagon but real power in the shadows.

Know you will be answered.

Much Love to you all wherever you come from. whatever your gender and age. As far as HE is concerned you are never to old to be of use to Him. That is good news.

Love and our prayers to all who enter this place.

Anna & Chris.

. . . this venerable church, unlike many other Christian churches in Yangon/Rangoon.

Be certain to see the Wall Badge plaques within the left front side chapel as well as the inscriptions within the right front chapel.

Sadly, the exterior brick is now painted as are the mortar lines!

This is one lovely cathedral. I attended the Good Friday Mass & Easter Sunday mass Service was in a mix of English & Burmese.
The locals who gather here are simply delightful and warm.
The Bogyoke market is just walking distance from here and plenty of local shops and little eating joints around.

I went to curch here last Sunday only to find a WWII memorial and the chapel indide dedicated to the members of the church who died during the Burma Campaign from 1942-45. Plaques adorn the chapel identifying the various regiments of the British Army and special forces. A great site for historians and a beautiful place to pray

There is an Eucharist in English on Sunday Morning at 8:30.
Holy Trinity Cathedral feels as though one is at home in England until one notices that the stained glass has been exchanged for louvered doors to let the breeze through. The priests, Father Reggie and Father William, and members of the congregation are warm and welcoming.

I saw this church while walking from the Yangon Central Station to my hostel at Chinatown. I saw it again while walking on my way to visit the Shwedagon Pagoda. I decided to drop in to have a glimpse of the interior. There was no security guard who stopped me from entering. It is free admission. I was the only one in the church compound. There was some renovation work going on in the church and the church staff greeted me with a nod.

Rows of seats extended towards the altar in front and I found the dome shaped ceiling of this Anglican Cathedral fascinating. This church was built and completed in 1894. It served as the spiritual center for the British Imperial Army when they set their foot on Burma. . It was a symbol of British colonialism and Imperialism that was planted n a predominantly Buddhist surrounding. But it now serves the interests of the local Christian community. The best time to come probably during the weekend to see the mass going on.

I took a cup of cold water from the water cylinder and sat on one of the benches and enjoyed a moment of silence and tranquility. The Indo-Saracenic architectural style of the Church appears impressive. The Bogyoke Aung San Market was located just adjacent to the Cathedral.

This Church management is proud of her recent achievement and displays prominently the Certificate of Excellence bestowed by Tripadvisor. I only spent half an hour here before I proceed to Bogyoke Aung San Market.

Been there for a friend's wedding, the building was indeed classily old but well maintained. Good for pictures

After I had walked to the Scott market, I went inside the Holy Trinity church for a short while. The interior has nice decorations, worth visiting if you are in the area.
