The Saigon destination - Notre Dame Basilica
Lets start from down town, first Notre Dame Basilica, just 30 minute walk from my hotel in pham ngu lao area, its the old cathedral that build by French colonists. The cathedral was constructed between 1863 and 1880. It has two bell towers, reaching a height of 58 meters.
If you want to pray inside the cathedral, they open just in 3 - 4 pm. Im not lucky because i come too early, so i just take a picture and sit the front of Regina Pacis statue.
I like to see the building, Roman style mixed with Gothic elements.Perfect style place for prayer. Religious aura and old. Especialy when you see the stone up of sky, with the black bird around.
I spend , more time, take a regina pacis face,even jut stone, she look pure and amazing.
