Evidence of historical French influence. Hopefully, Siam regained quickly this part of its territory

This cathedral is the landmark of Chanthaburi. It was erected during the Indochina period. It has a magnificient teak wood ceiling. There is a mass everyday at 7 o clock, and the cathedral will open doors around 6.30 PM.

107 years old cathedral still shining in the community. One that can be comparable to the cathedral in Europe.

Beautiful both outside and inside. A peaceful place to sit for a while. The statue inside of the lovely madonna is encrusted with 200000 sapphires.

Very odd to find a catholic cathedral in Thailand, and the piped hymns in Thai are verging on the surreal, but there is lovely riverside restaurants in old Fisherman's houses nearby, we had a lovely day out.
