Cathedral – Con Ga Church
The Cathedral Church is often called “Con Ga Church” (because on the bell tower there is a lightning rod cast in the shape of a chicken). The Cathedral was constructed in 1931 and completed in 1942 with the title of Saint Nicola Bari. However, later it was changed to the title Mary Mother of God.
The architectural shape is designed symmetrically in the classic way which is 65m long, 14m wide, and 47m high.
Although the location of Cathedral does not look directly at Xuan Huong Lake, you can easily see it at any position below the lake bank due to its special height.
The main door of the church is directed towards Lang Biang Mountain. The attic section is arranged with 70 stained glass panels (made from France), depicting evangelical scenes and portraits of saints, making the cathedral more majestic and magical. On the wall, there are reliefs of 1 x 0.8m in size made by sculptor Xuan Thi. The church campus has a closed fence.
This is a beautiful and valuable architectural work. Furthermore, this is also the place to regularly organize moral activities of Dalat diocese.
