World Monuments Fund Presents

First Baptist Church of Mawlamyine

In 2016, World Monuments Fund began a restoration project at the First Baptist Church in Mawlamyine, Myanmar. Originally constructed in 1827 by American missionary Adoniram Judson, the church continues to function as an active place of worship for the local community. With support from the U.S. Embassy through the Ambassadors Fund for Cultural Preservation, we are working to preserve this special piece of Myanmar's history.
