Phuong Chinh church in Nam Dinh province
beautiful dome and interior, with wooden ceiling like those halls in England's Windsor castle, unlike the typical gothic or romaneques ceiling vaults in churches in vn.
this is among many new churches built in VN in recent years......Phuong Chinh church built in 1998 is the 3rd church on site since 1900.

it's true what they say: VN is poor in everything but faith.

in small villages where people don't have enough to eat, they have the will to put up grand and opulent houses for God.

about 6-7yrs ago i watched a hongkong horor movie....with a scene shot outside of this church.......I thought this was a church in China, because there were a lot of chinese scriptures engraved outside and inside the church.

Later I found out this is a Vietnamese "Dai On" church in the province of Ha Tay.

this church has a beautiful dome, the rear is heavenly with 3 parts, the aisles, nave and the central dome stacking on top of each other, but you can't see the dome from the front.

like I said earlier, many people mistaken chritianity was brought in VN by the French during their invasion, but Christianity was introduced to VN by the spanish and portuguese long before the French came. Therefore, besides French church buildings.....VN is also home to many spanish and portuguese church architectures......you can find a lot of them in Nam Dinh province.

Welcome to Nam Dinh province!

WHo would have thought richly ornate spanish churches found in europe and south america continents exist in Vietnam?

....or Spanish and portuguese colonies such as Philipines and Macao
but if you're curious about this style in Vietnam then see the few examples below

and if you're Vietnamese and had only Phatdiem in mind, think again.
rich and spectacular Vietnamese church buildings are everywhere in northern vietnam, Phatdiem is just the mother church of all churches.
