Holy Trinity Cathedral

Holy Trinity Cathedral (Burmese: သန့်ရှင်းသော တြိနတိ ကသီဒြယ်, IPA: [θa̰ɴʃɪ́ɴ ðɔ́ tɹḭnətḭ kəθìdɹɛ̀]) is the primary Anglican cathedral in Myanmar (Burma), located on Bogyoke Aung San Road (next to Bogyoke Aung San Market) in Latha Township, Yangon. The cathedral was designed by Robert Chisholm, a Madras-based architect, in the Indo-Saracenic style to adapt to warm and humid conditions. Construction began in 1886, with the laying of the foundation stone by Lord Dufferin, the Viceroy of India, and was completed in 1894. The stained glass windows were repaired in 2003. The cathedral is listed on the Yangon City Heritage List. The cathedral is located next to a formerly associated missionary school, Basic Education High School No. 2 Pabedan (formerly Saint Mary's School). The current Vicar/Dean, The Very Rev'd Reginald Bennett, is also on the faculty of Holy Cross Theological College, 104 Inya Laan, Yangon.
