Eastern Church, is located east of central Wangfujing Street, the Catholic East Church, or Wangfujing Catholic Church, is one of the best-preserved religious sites in the heart of Beijing.

The Eastern Church was originally called Saint Joseph's Church, and was built in the 12th year (1655) of Emperor Shunzhi during the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911).

Take the line one subway to Wangfujing Station. The church is about 500 metres north of the northwest station exit.

Unique Suggestions: Trees and grass were planted and various lighting facilities were installed to show off the gorgeous building at night.
