Saigon Notre Dame Cathedral 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.

胡志明市地標性建築 位於中心樞紐 交通方便 但因整修中 可惜無法進入參觀 但也不減其獨特的魅力 建議一定要備齊防曬用具以及飲用水 more »Ho Chi Minh City's land-based building is located in the center of the convenient transportation, but in the renovation unfortunately, unfortunately, it is not without its unique charm Built must be equipped with anti-appliances and water
It’s a good attraction and also on the opposite side of another great attraction that is saigon post office. There’s no fee to see it . You can take great pictures and adjacent to it is a place where there’s a lot of pigeons fed by tourists. You will find a lot of people praying there. Both the attractions have no fee and are close enough. These are also a must see attractions in Ho Chi Minh City.
Amazingly beautiful! Even though it is under maintenance but we can see its charm from distance. A beautiful church located centrally next to the postal office. My friend had her wedding here and I luckily saw the interior. It was amazingly reserved. A top tourist attraction place in the South of Vietnam. Best time to come is early morning 6-8am when the city is quiet or sunshine. You will see flares
