A landmark that can be spotted from miles away with its elegant ‘Green Dome’ the Xikai Church also known as St Joseph’s Cathedral is the largest catholic church in Tianjin. Almost a century old the church was built by French Jesuit Missionaries in 1916 with every brick being imported from France. Its architectural style is distinctively Romanesque. The main hall is big enough to accommodate about 1500 people and is supported by 14 huge columns leading to a gallery style tee. The walls are covered with paintings and murals depicting scenes from the Bible. From the time of its construction till about 80 years hence it was said to be the tallest building in Tianjin. All these years the church has stood taut although having undergone many damages both natural and man-made. After undergoing extensive renovations the church was re-opened to the public in 1980 and has since been listed on Tianjin’s cultural relic protection list.
