Stunning church, aka the Notre Dame of East Asia. Worth a visit -- one of only 4 all granite gothic churches in the world. Church service in progress when we visited so we couldn't really walk freely ...
Interesting visit to this historic cathedral in mainland China. There was a briefing about the Cathedral and the origins of Christmas to the Chinese visitors inside when we visited. Do explore the tin...
The most cathedral in the Catholic Diocese of Guangzhou, one of the most magnificent double-tower Gothic buildings in China, the only all-stone church in China, built by hundreds of thousands of granites, is also the world's four all-stone Gothic church buildings. One (with the same name as Notre Dame de Paris).
Because it is not a day off, but it is coming in the morning, there is almost no tourist in the church. You can sit quietly and watch the book and be in a daze.
When I first arrived at the Sacred Heart Cathedral of Shishi, I was scared. There are so many people, except for tourists who are more locals. There were so many people in the church. We thought about it or gave up and took pictures outside. In fact, the church is not big, and we walked away from the sand surface, but some felt that it was not worth it, but it was good to go all the way and watch the life of the people of Guangzhou all the way.
I am doing it with salty and salty retouching, so the style gap is still quite big, so let's take a look.
In order to avoid the crowd, so only take pictures like this.
I am actually a Buddhist, so I can't write any thoughts about the church. It's about the different beliefs.
The Stone Room Sacred Heart Church is located on the bustling Yide Road and is the most magnificent and characteristic cathedral in the Catholic Diocese of Guangzhou. The church was built in 1863 and has a history of more than 130 years. Since all the walls and pillars of the church are made of granite, the Guangzhou people call it the "stone chamber." It's free, so you can look at the non-mass time and the glass windows are beautiful. On the front of the church is a pair of towering spires, symbolizing the ascent to heaven and the conversion to the lord; the tower on the faade of the faade is a characteristic of the Gothic church architecture, and is also the highlight of the architectural styling. The arched urn; the spire is a hollow octagonal cone, made of stone, underneath a three-story building, the steeper the steeper the spire, and finally the cone tip to the sky. This strange Gothic building has a lot of Chinese elements. The whole church was built with Chinese soil method, glutinous rice tung oil instead of cement. This is both waterproof and firm, and the dome stone is also cut from the double. The hole is worn with iron branches, which is more firm. The water outlet at the top of the church has also been changed into a Chinese lion shape. The floor has also been changed from the originally designed stone to the Guangdong big-order brick, so that the moisture resistance is better. The door is also engraved with a wide-style wood carving.
The Sacred Heart Cathedral is a Catholic church in the Diocese of Guangzhou. Now it has become a classic representative of Guangzhou's exotic customs. At the front of the church there are a pair of towering stone twin spires. There are four big bronze bells from France in the middle of the tower. The arched domes, stained glass windows, and lattice windows in the church are all charismatic elements in the Catholic Church.
