This church is mix architecture of french and Vietnam. This interesting to see how two different cultures are harmonious with each other.

Beautiful historical church built in a style that reflects both traditional Vietnamese architecture and the view of the French church on how a church should go out.

The unique church and impressive precinct. A combination between highland cultural and Roman Design. Peaceful feeling when you're there.

It's reserved mosly so we can find many architecture here. The most special thing is made by wood. Regret that we could not find much typical things of local people here.

The craftsmanship that went into building this place of worship is amazing. You can see no use of nails or rebar in this structure. It provides a peaceful spot to relax while touring all else.

It's an airy well maintained stained glass church. We were lucky to see a local wedding. It is hard to believe that it's over a hundred years old. It was close to town and easy to locate.

This incredible old wooden church is worth a visit when in Kon Tum. We were able to go inside and apparently listening to hymns sung in the Bahnar language is beautiful.
