The Cathedral of the Assumption (Bangkok-Thailand)
The Cathedral of the Assumption is the central Catholic cathedral in Bangkok, dating back to 1662. It was built between 1910 and 1918 at the site of the old church. It was restored after suffering the devastation and Allied bombing during the World War II. With its two Romanesque towers, it differs greatly from other famous Catholic churches in Bangkok, such as Santa Cruz and Holy Rosary. Pope John Paul II visited the cathedral during his trip in 1984. The name was given by the Assumption of St. Mary and the cathedral itself is the legacy of French missionaries who arrived in Thailand in the mid-17th century. The original structure was changed in the early 1900s, when the Italians added the details that were characteristic for their art style.
