Travel Tuesdays #21: Catholic China



Beijing's Catholic Church

This photo was taken in Beijing, China in September 2008.

You don't see many churches in China. Buddhist temples are fairly ubiquitous, even in this supposedly-atheist, Communist state. But churches, not so much.

You walk across the grass to the church and - particularly on a sunny day like this one - you feel like you could be in the mediterranean somewhere. Only the sea of Chinese faces gives you a clue.

Beautiful photo. It looks so peaceful.

Awesome shot. I can't believe that China has a nice architectural catholic church.

Interesting. I knew there were churches there but for some reason my mind did not picture big and beautiful (and obvious) churches.

Ya, it is a beautiful church. By the way is this suppose to be St. Joseph catholic Church at downtown, Wanfuching street?
