Lonely planet book about Myanmar provided the information about the existence of this unique church epitomising in one sacred building the surprisingly long history of Armenian diaspora in Burma or Myanmar. I had the chance not only to see and photograph the church from outside,...More

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.

This is Yangon's oldest church dating to the 19th century. It's a gem of a place, small, simple set amidst greenery, away from the sights and sounds of Yangon streets. There were hardly any other visitors here, so we could walk around, read its history,...More

Armenian Apostolic Church of St. John - just your typical local society church that people visit on Sundays.

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..
