"Holy Rosary Church" Holy Rosary Church - Kalawar Church Tip by Willettsworld


This lovely churches faces right onto the river in the far south of Samphanthawong district in Bangkok. The Portuguese built Holy Rosary Church in 1786 with a land grant from King Rama I, four years after Bangkok was established as the capital. The present cream-colored structure was built from 1891-98 and has a high facade topped with a towering spire; a statue of Virgin Mary stands above the high arches framing the main entrance, leading to tall arched doors.
