    She Shan Cathedral

    by Jiang_Cucha Written Aug 25, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: She Shan Cathedral

    Fondest memory: The She Shan Cathedral stands on the hill named She Shan which lies to the north of the Songjiang county. This construction was built during 1925-35. The design of the cathedral is under a Roman style influenced by eclecticism. The Baroque domes and Gothic inner ornamentations get in harmony with each other. Along the zigzaging path leading up to the Cathedral, there 14 'hard-walking pavilions' at all the corner-turnings which portray what Jesus had suffered during his life time.

I took this photo by sitting at stepstone of Gang Hui Plaza. I love the nightfall of Xu Jia Hui. Also I had many memorable moments at there 2 years ago.

    Favorite thing: Xu Jia Hui Cathedral

    Fondest memory: Xujiahui Catheral, the largest Catholic church in Shanghai, was constructed at 158 Puxi Road in 1910. It is a French Gothic construction. The two belfries tower over the sky. The outer walls are made up of red bricks. The eaves, gates and windows are of Gothic design. The church is richly ornamented by marble sculptures. The highrise and slender structure creates a mysterious illusion of the heaven.

    Some movie and TV directors love this place for shooting. Actually, I like it too though I am a buddhist.
