Remembering colonial Burma.....

When we think of Southeast Asian architecture we always think of old temples and ancient statues, but the influence of colonial times has had just as much of an influence on the local infrastructure and design. The city known then as Rangoon with its glorious array of architectural wonders, has the largest number of British colonial buildings in the region surpassing Malaysia and Singapore.

This shot of St. Mary’s Cathedral AD 1895 situated at Bo Aung Kyaw Street, is one of the most impressive collections of colonial-era architecture in Burma, designed by Dutch architect Jos Cuypers with its famous red brick exterior, twin spires and a bell tower.
