Notre Dame Cathedral, Ho Chi Minh City Reviews

  • Perched in the middle of a busy modern city, it's such an awesome feeling looking at this old building. While the building around it is in modern design, it has an old European architecture. Going inside, there's a deep feeling of sacred solemnity. What's surprising for me is that the cathedral is still used for Catholic Sunday Services even until today. So please be considerate when you visit this place on a Sunday.

  • Located on number 1 Paris Commune, District 1. Its official name is Cathedral Basilica of Our Lady of The Immaculate Conception, which is one of the famous symbols of Ho Chi Minh City. It was established by French colonists between 1863 and 1860. With the special France's architecture, this church has been attracting thousands visitors come here to explore and pray with God 🙏. A sanctuary to worship, honour God and Mother in the belief of Christians ✝

  • A vintage church indeed. Classic architecture of the past. As there are no tall structures around it, the church looks prominent. There is a garden and post-office near to it. A tall Virgin Mary statue is erected in front of it. We are not able to enter as the gates are closed for reasons unknown. 11.11.17 Church undergoing restoration.

  • A must visit place in Saigon! The place can get very touristy most of the time for a decent picture. Nice architecture but you are not allowed inside unless if you are a Cath.

  • *** CLOSED FOR RENOVATIONS TILL 2020 **** At first, renovations were estimated to continue until late 2019 but now have been delayed until 2020 sometime. You will not be able to enter; so the best you can obtain is an exterior shot; as you continue to explore this beautiful city. I wish there were a way to mark closed till 2020 on Google Maps; as like myself I am guilty of "assuming" things are open based solely on quick map search :(
