This little church tells the history of the Armenians ( Jews), the development of commerce in Rangoon and construction of the historic buildings in the centre of town. There is a small illustrated exhibition which is well worth seeing.

I wonder how many people would know how important the Armenian community was in Yangon at one time. It was a fascinating place to visit if a little sad, because of the tradegy suffered in the Second World War

Who knew Yangon had such an Armenian influence? This church is on part of a walking tour and we went in. Fascinating little place, easily overlooked. Has some information to read about its history inside as well. There is now only a small congregation, how...More

The church is on the heritage trail and well worth a visit. The place is cool and the music played in the background encourages a pause, a meditation or a prayer even..
