The striking red structure of Assumption Cathedral in the heart of Thailand is one of the few 200 plus years old churches in Bangkok. The cathedral is considered as a quaint legacy of the French Community, it’s as though the French left a little part of old Europe back in Bangkok. The church accounts as a prominent red brick rectangular structure surrounded by white buildings. It accounts as one of the top historic places in Bangkok for its amusing architectural style that is uncommon in today’s world. It has been well very preserved and maintained for the worshippers.
Tourists see the Assumption Cathedral as a departure from the domed belfries and high steeples of churches like Santa Cruz Church and the Holy Rosary Church of the 18th century. In case you have grown bored of the Bangkok skyscrapers and are longing to see the other side of this beautiful city then visiting the Assumption Cathedral to appreciate its architectural splendour is a must.
