Holy Trinity Cathedral is listed on the Yangon City Heritage List and hence is one of the most significant structures of the city. It is arguably the oldest colonial cathedral in Yangon. It is the main Anglican cathedral in Myanmar, located on Bogyoke Aung San Road (next to Bogyoke Aung San Market) in Latha Township. The cathedral was designed by Robert Chisholm, a Madras-based architect, in the Indo-Saracenic style to adapt to warm and humid weather 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 cathedral also serves as a memorial to several young British soldiers who died during the Burma Campaign. There are several wall tablatures memorizing those young brave menalthough the well kept surrounding gardens do not contain any burials. It used to be a brewery during Japanese invasion of Myanmar.
