after all the temples, pagodas, Stupas in Myanmar, we had a great experience in finding this gem of a church.....large, bright interior with wonderful stained glass windows. A small gift shop for souvenirs like jade cross rosary etc. A nicely maintained front garden as well.

教堂內的玻璃,耶穌像的莊嚴,值得去參觀,感受,讓心靈沉澱! 附近也有很多好吃的食物,走路就可以到,教堂對面是緬甸時報電視臺的總部,也是一棟歷史建物。 Glass of the Church , Worth visiting, feeling, let the mind precipitate!

This cathedral is beautiful! Unfortunately the doors were closed and we weren't able to go inside. We peeked through the windows and it looked amazing.

Other than being a majestic building competing with numerous pagodas for the skyline, I didn't particularly find it attractive or interesting.

It's a nice place within walking distance to the market and other places. It wasn't the most interesting thing for me but I'm glad I got to see it.
