Wooden Church, Kontum
(4/5 based on 60+ reviews on the web)
Observe the unique vintage architecture and see how Wooden Church has stood the test of time. Built back in 1913 by French priest Guise Decrouille, made mostly of now-extremely rare wood such as rose wood and ca chit. More than just a church, at the back of the church is an orphanage ran by nuns and also inside the church itself are a display of creations by Kontum locals. The church is very welcoming and will be more than happy to speak to you about the church. Make Wooden Church a part of your Kontum vacation plans using our Kontum vacation planner.

  • Wooden church of Kon Tum 100 years more, due to a French priest built in 1913 to early 1918 then completed and put into use.
