Immaneul Baptist Church

One of the oldest Churches in Yangon is located at the corner of Maha Bandula Road and Maha Bandula Garden Street (just east of Sule Pagoda).

Built in 1885 by an American missionary, the church was destroyed during World War II but rebuilt in 1952.American Baptist International Ministries, which at that time was called the American Baptist Foreign Mission Society. One of the founders of that missionary organisation was Adoniram Judson, who lived in Burma from 1813 to his death in 1850. The church is on the Yangon City Heritage List, a list of man-made landmarks designated by the governmental Yangon City Development Committee.
