Saint Mary's Cathedral, Yangon Reviews
Different from the usual places you'd visit in Yangon or in Myanmar for that matter, but I would say it's worth a visit. I particularly enjoyed the window mosaics which were really well done and colorful. It is also a good place to sit down and cool down if you've been walking around and touring the busy streets of the city.
The pray center of Roman Catholic. The interior and exterior design is wonderful. We can see the art of medieval period.
Very beautiful and somewhat unexpected in this place, especially after days upon days of pagodas. Papa Francisco was here recently. Very accessible, gate and doors wide open. I say this because on occasions in SEAsia I've had to take out and show my escapular to gain entrance, especially in VN.
Didn't visit during open hours, so did not go inside. And the church was preparing for a wedding ceremony. The stained glasses inside seem to be really beautiful.
The Cathedral is a great place to visit especially to Catholics from all over the world.
