Huyen Sy Church

Over 100 years old, Huyen Sy Church is the oldest and second largest Catholic church in Saigon. It was named after Huyen Sy, grandfather of queen Nam Phuong, the wife of Vietnam's last king. He died in 1900 before the building was completed. Off the nave are the tombs of Mr. and Mrs. Huyen Sy. The church is a tranquil haven popular among Vietnamese Catholics and visitors looking to add to their Saigon photographs collection.
 

Located at the junction of Ton That Tung and Nguyen Trai in Ho Chi Minh City's District 1, Huyen Sy Church is one of the four biggest Catholic churches in the city. It is built in the Gothic style of many European cathedrals. Many times daily you will see locals come to Huyen Sy to light incense and votives and pray. The small windows serve a function to keep out as much of the tropical heat as possible.
