Ngày đăng: 08/06/2016 .
The Phat Diem Stone Cathedral is located in Kim Sơn District of Ninh Bình Province, is one of the most famous and beautiful churches in Vietnam with special architecture: an elegant combination between Western church architecture style and Vietnamese religious buildings.
 

 
It was built by the priest Father Tran Luc, also called as Pere Six in French or cu Sau in Vietnamese, in the front yard of the cathedral the wooden statues in the cathedral were all carved by Pho Gia, a Vietnamese artisan
 
 
It took 24 years to build this church from 1875 to 1898. And as its name suggests, it was completely built of stone and wood that are readily available in the mountain area of Ninh Binh, materials mainly extracting from limestone mountains, took the local as many as 10 years to finish.
 

 
The inside of the church has many sophisticatedly carved reliefs, with chrysanthemum, bamboo, fir tree and apricot tree that symbolize four seasons in a year
