Chanthaburi Cathedral

The Church of the Immaculate Conception in Chanthaburi is considered by many to be the most impressive Christian church in Thailand. The church was completed in 1909 during a brief period when Chanthaburi was a French colony. The French influence is evident in the Gothic spires on the front of the church and reminiscent of cathedrals built elsewhere in French Indo-China such as Saigon Notre-Dame Cathedral in Vietnam.

The Church of the Immaculate Conception is a Catholic place of worship and the province has the most active Catholic congregation in Thailand. A large number of Christians from all over Asia, but in particular Vietnam, came to settle in Chanthaburi and the town has an unusually large population of Catholics in comparison to other part of Thailand as a consequence.

Church of the Immaculate Conception in Chanthaburi

A church has existed on the site since 1711, and the current incarnation was preceded by three smaller churches. The current church is not only magnificent on the outside, it is also highly ornate on the inside. The interior has a wooden vaulted roof, again reminiscent of churches in metropolitan France, and stain glass windows imported from France.

The most notable feature of the interior is, however, the statue of the Virgin Mary which is covered by hundreds of thousands of gems donated by the local congregation. The Church of the Immaculate Conception is open to visitors Fridays to Sundays from 10:00 and 15:00 and admission is free.
