  Skeleton of a church
by manil51
 
 

In between Hue and Dong Ha is a dilapidated Catholic Church that was the site of a fierce and bloody battle between American troops and the Viet Cong. The Americans had sought refugee within the church walls, but this was to no avail. The Church has been left standing in its bullet ridden state as a reminder of the war, and to this day retains an eerie feeling within the sanctuary.
