St. Joseph’s Church was built between 1921 and 1924. This church adopts the Byzantine architectural style, imitating the San Vitale Cathedral in Italy. It is quite different from most Gothic or Roman churches in Vietnam. It uses a lot of gorgeous and high-quality building materials such as high-grade wood and marble. , Regarded by the locals as one of the most beautiful and largest churches, it is worth visiting and taking pictures.
Opposite this church is the night market-Hạnh Thông Tây Market. Many locals go there for shopping. The prices of goods are relatively real. It is also very pleasant to visit the church and visit the night market.
Next to the lively market, the area turning into the church immediately became much quieter. The beautiful building is great for taking pictures, and there is a small shop next to it to buy drinks and take a break. This church is one of the most special churches in the color that I have ever encountered. Unfortunately, it was cloudy when I went there. There was no way that the sun could reflect the strong pink of the church. Also, because Christmas is approaching, some places are being decorated. pay attention. Basically, this is a cathedral in the center of Ho Chi Minh City. I think it is the Anglican religion. There was actually a wedding rehearsal on the day we arrived, so we could not risk going too far. The tall building looks amazing.
I came to this church again. I don’t know what the Chinese name is. However, the church’s stone statues are very meaningful for the construction here. The statue of Jesus is especially worth taking pictures. The church often has activities. I didn’t open the door when I came that day, usually at 5 pm. At 6 o'clock, believers gather here to pray.
It used to be a relatively large refugee camp in Ho Chi Minh City during the Vietnam War. It is now an open church with many pictures of the Vietnam War.
I found this church in the Chinatown area. There is a history of the coup d’état in November 1963. The Catholic president and his brothers hid here during the coup d’état. The church is usually closed, except for the time of the event. The compound is accessible.
