The Holy Trinity Cathedral is the main Anglican church in Yangon. Although work on the redbrick structure began in 1886, it took a long nine years to get it finished as funds were chronically limited. The church was designed by Madras-based architect Robert Fellowes Chisholm, famous for building in Indo-Saracenic style. And although this church would not look out of place in England, adaptations to the Burmese climate include the roofed entrance area underneath the tower, intended to shelter worshippers from the torrential rains.
Sameba, Tbilisi, Georgia, is the third-tallest Eastern Orthodox Cathedral in the World. Sameba is a synthesis of traditional styles dominating the Georgian church architecture at various stages in history and has some Byzantine undertones.
Holy trinity cathedral, Tbilisi. The only problem with this building is the inside is really quite bland. The other much older cathedrals aren’t so great on the outside but every piece of inside wall is filled with art.
On Sunday morning Rachel and I attended a Catholic mass, in German, at the Holy Trinity Cathedral in the main square in Sibiu. Man, that cathedral is beautiful!! It was Romanian Orthodox once upon a time to it has lovely art work painted on the walls and ceilings, there are marble columns, statues, paintings, little chandeliers…just wow. The service was really interesting too, and though I didn’t know what was being said or sung it was very enjoyable to listen to, plus there was just a very nice atmosphere.
