A glorious architectural angel

I thought like everyone else, the most special thing about Phat Diem church near Tam Coc Ninh Binh was that it was built of stone, an architectural technology that is not common in traditional Vietnamese architecture, until I learned that the temple of King Tran in Bich Dong was built. The cave is full of stone, many folk houses with architectural details made of stone, then it is known that stone processing is a unique tradition. But it is worth honoring that only when going to Phat Diem stone church, the pinnacle mark is determined with the talent and will of Master Tran Luc and the artisan class – lay people, honoring the traditional stone profession. .

The cathedral is always a unique subject in the overall space, a powerful protection and support for the little souls of each sheep. Phat Diem Cathedral near Tam Coc Ninh Binh is extremely unique, not only in its architecture, but also because of the intense beauty of an architectural complex, which is rare in church architecture. And the strange emotion was decoded. Those are the vibes of the Vietnamese soul, the natural sharing with a familiar aesthetic, conveyed through an architectural complex that seems to be very different because of its great stature, yet warm and familiar like the old ones. village streets and alleys…
