  • ...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 »
  • Really good to see, and glad we did, as part of a self-guided walking tour. The exterior is especially good. Costs 2,000 chat to enter.  more »
