"The South Cathedral - an..." South Cathedral -Of the Immaculate Conception Tip by bokononist


The South Cathedral - an interesting reminder of the millions of Christians still around in China. You have to get there bright and early to catch a mass though, the CCP makes them schedule them for the most inconvenient times (like 5 a.m.). It's open though during the rest of the time and you can take a look around. It's a little sad to see how rundown it is, but you can see what it once was.
