Notre Dame Cathedral at Vietnam

Built between 1877 to 1883, the cathedral is an iconic structure standing in the middle of Paris Square. The red-bricked facade has two towers rising 40 meters. The Catholic cathedral is named after Virgin Mary, whose statue stands in the grassed-square holding an orb. The interiors are decorated with devotional tablets and some original stained glasses. The church has a warm and distinct neo-Romanesque feel to it. Sundays are packed with the devotees at the mass, and newly-wed couples with their photographers. During the night, the cathedral's walls provide shelter to several homeless.
