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

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..

Serene and tranquil, this church gives one a sense of spirituality when you enter inside. Definitely worth a visit to any tourist.
