Jeanne d’Arc Church, Ho Chi Minh City

The St Joan Of Arc Church and Synagogue is located in the Chinatown district of Saigon. Built in 1928, this Ho Chi Minh City landmark is almost always photographed straight-on with a wide-angle lens in travel brochures.

I walked down a bit and waited until these two street vendors arrived. Their Vietnamese conical straw hats provided juxtaposition against the pink Gothic architecture. The Church is known locally as Thánh Nữ Jeanne D’Arc and also Nhà thờ Ngã Sáu.
