Rangoon Off The Beaten Path: 24 reviews and 36 photos
One of the things I noticed in Myanmar (Burma) was the proliferation of religions and the apparent tolerance there is amongst the various groups. Obviously, Buddhism is the predominant faith, but there are many Hindu and Sikh places of worship, along with a noticeable Christian element and quite a number of Moslem mosques.
What I wasn't quite prepared for, however, was the sight of an Armenian Christian Church in the centre of downtown Yanogn (Rangoon) and yet the photograph proves it is there. In a country full of unusual sights, I found this one of the strangest. I certainly didn't meet any Armenians when I was there. Should you wish to worship, or just go for a look, the address is the Armenian Church of St. John the Baptist, No. 66, 40th St., Yangon (Rangoon). Actually, it looked shut when I was there, but I'm sure it would be open for worship on a Sunday.
