Saint Sophia Church: Cathedral of the Holy Wisdom of God

Saint Sophia Church is the typical representation of Byzantine church building in China. Built in 1907, it offers high historical value in research and architectural value in view.

I went here at around 7 p.m. CST on September 7, 2011. This was during my second visit in China, the first international country on my list.

In 1986, it was enlisted as the Class I protected architechture in Harbin, Heilongjiang and in 1996 it was included as the nation-level key protection.

At more than 100 years old, Saint Sophia Church is full of charm. The fresc, suspension lamp, bell tower, dome and stage inside the church possess high historical, cultural, and architectural value.
