Churches in Bangkok
Christian Places of Worship in the City of Angels
Christianity first came to Thailand in 1511 with the arrival of Portuguese traders when the capital was in Ayutthaya. After Ayutthaya was destroyed, the capital moved to Bangkok. Catholic missionaries became more numerous establishing the Catholic Church and building many beautiful churches in Bangkok. Some of these are still standing today and are wonderful examples of European colonial architecture.
Holy Rosary Church is a Chao Phraya River landmark and one of the most beautiful churches in Bangkok with it?s distinctive gothic spire.
The Immaculate Conception Church is one of the oldest Catholic Churches in Bangkok, in the Dusit district just around the corner from Saint Francis Xavier.
