    Must visit!

    Built in 1880 by the French and was called the Church of Saigon. It's called the Notre Dame Cathedral because of the two bell towers resembling the original cathedral. When we got there is was closed...

    I visited whilst going to the Post Office next door. I imagine the building is stunning - but I was unable to see due to all the scaffolding!!

    Construction work

    Still looks decent from the outside, but the ongoing construction work definitely detracts. The interior wasn't open when I visited in early March.

Additional Information

Introduction

The Saigon Notre-Dame Cathedral Basilica is one of the landmark buildings of Ho Chi Minh City. Located in the heart of the city, it was built in the late 19th century. Featuring typical Gothic architecture, the front has two bell towers measuring 40 meters, which are modeled after the design of Paris's Notre Dame Cathedral. On the garden square in front of the church, there stands a 4-ton Virgin Mary statue which was given as a gift from the Church in Rome in 1945. If, by chance, you happen to visit while Mass is going on, you can quietly enter the church to feel the pious religious atmosphere.
