Trip Planner: Asia / Vietnam / Ho Chi Minh City / Notre Dame Cathedral of Saigon
Notre Dame Cathedral of Saigon stands as a testament to the impact of the French culture and Christian civilization on Indochina. The neo-Romanesque red-brick cathedral was considered the most beautiful church in the French colonies at the time it was built (between 1877 and 1883). The two belfries, which were added in 1895, rise to the height of 60 m (190 ft). See some of the original stained-glass windows inside the entrance and the devotional tablets on interior walls. The cathedral was the center of media attention in 2005, when thousands of devotees flocked around the Virgin Mary statue that reportedly shed tears in front of the main entrance.

When we got there is was closed for visitation and we were on a tight schedule so we walked around and about a bit. The space outside was covered with beautiful flowers and we went around clicking pictures in the church garden. Do ask around when they would be open for visitation as we missed the stained glass windows inside.
Historic cathedral, and an iconic and building of Ho chi minh city. Beautiful French architecture, and there's a really clean and pretty park in front of the cathedral. As of August 2022, this building is still under renovation, and is almost completely surrounded by scaffolding. The renovation is going to last for a few more years, according to city officials.
