hello again, actually this way is easier for me too.
After seeing Hoangduong photos of Hanoi, I couldn't help but think, these churches are only being captured in 1 single snap of the main building, if you combined HoangDuong talent with jaro, tq and LS passion we will have so much awe inspiring images of these churches

visit this website and see professional pictures of VN from north to south

Bac Ninh main cathedral
this cathedral was a big spanish complex with complete ornately decorative spanish gate, school, and chapel...unfortunately everything got demolished or bombed? and all it's left now is the main church building.

so far these are the old historical french churches that got bombed from my counting:
-Go Thi
-Tra co
-Hon Gai
-Lang Son cathedral
-Tam Toa
-La Vang basillica
-Tra Kieu
-Ben Tre
-Vinh cathedral
-Long Kha
-Vo Hot
-Chan Ninh
-Do Son
-Long An
-Phu Ly
-My Tuc
-Thuy Tru
-Dong Dang
-Ba Vi
-Thai Binh cathedral
-Quan Vinh
-Muu Giap
-Lang Co
-Mang Lang
-Thi Nghe
-Cau Kho
-Di Linh
-VInh Long cathedral
-Long Xuyen cathedral
-Hon Chong
-Ong Dao

so many more that we don't have the accurate infos.....just do the math, "Vietnam war" is the only war that the America call "the 10.000 days war"....each year we only have 365 days.....but they used Vietnam soil for testing American nuclear weapons and Russian communism ideology and raging the country over 10.000 days.

ps. some people may not notices this, but Saigon basillica also got bombed on 1 bell tower, that's why if you visit it now you will see some windows are clear glass instead of stained glass.

Vietnam is largely non-religious. Yet I heard that Catholicism is very vibrant there. In fact, the clergy here in the Philippines is being slowly replaced by the Vietnamese and Burmese.

Anyway, great thread you have here! I thought VN only had the Notre Dame in SGN as their only cathedral. And my, those churches are gorgeous...and mostly gothic.

Vietnamese are not non-religious. We have many other major religions beside Catholic.

"largely non religious" that's true!

8-10% catholic, 40% budhism, 1-2% others (Protestant, Cao Dai, Hoa Hao, Muslim, Hindu)........so the rest are non religious.

However I only trust the catholic estimation, because all parish churches keeping documents of baptized babies, newlyweds etc.....
therefore they know for sure how many catholics they have in each parish.

I've visited many churches in VN, they all have libraries documented of the deceases, new born babies, new converters, newlyweds, catholic family lineage etc.......basically they keep your family history better than yourself.
My family had to go to the priest and asked for my great grand parents names. The date my grandparents got married.


I don;t think they do that with budhist, plus you are not obligated to attend religious service in temple....so it's hard to tell the accurate percentage of Vietnamese budhism. Who knows, could be between 40-80%

people don't think of VN as the land of churches and cathedrals.

but lets not forget what they say....."the British colonized other countries with opiums, the French colonized by building churches."

I bet you cannot find 1 former French colony without a church.

PnomPenh and Cambodia in general had lots of churches too, but the war and the red Khmer regime detroyed most of them.
I still feel the lost for the big art deco cathedral of Pnom Penh..so big and imposing with 2 tall bell towers.
