I’ve lived my whole life here in Ho Chi Minh City. There’re several buildings that hold significant meaning in our cultures. Among these, the one which I enjoy visiting the most is Duc Ba Cathedral.

It’s located in District 1 – right in the heart of Ho Chi Minh City. The church is surrounded by other important structures such as Reunification Palace on the right, HCM Post Office on the left and at the back Diamond Plaza – a great place for shopping. To get there is quite easy. It’s a 5-minute-walk from here.

Even though there’re plenty of churches around here, this one is quite unique for it was built by French colonizers before they left Vietnam.

The architecture of Notre Dame is not only impressive but also unique. It’s quite large. It was built out of bricks and concretes. Its distinctive shape makes it look like a whole lot of mushroom to me. The church comprises of a rectangular building with 2 towers at the sides of the entrance, along with the statue of Mother Maria in front. Because the building is quite old, certain parts of it have been reconstructed time and again.

There’re several activities take place at this place. For example, Christians go there to say their prayers, tourists pay a visit to this must-visit structure, husband-and-wife-to-be pose for their wedding photos while young people just sit around for a chit-chat and take in the view.

I guess I love this building not only because of its distinct look but also due to the memories I have had there with my friends and loved ones.
