  • It is very interesting and a place of prayer and worship. Also a place to visit who love the architecture.  more »
  • ...the place was closed and I could not enter, so I had to settle for a few pics from the street. It is a nice piece of architecture and it shines amidst a rather shabby - yet central - neighborhood.  more »
  • This cathedral surprised me. If I were commissioned to design a cathedral this is what I would strive for. A real surprise to find this in a country that is primarily Buddhist.  more »
