Why Old Catholic Church is special ?

The Old Catholic Church was built by the French in the early 1920s as part of the French township on Bokor Mountain. This oldest church is well-known for its historical background when the French settle their power in Cambodia.  The outlook still remains original bricks & colors unlike the casino hotel which already re-constructed and lost the original look. 

What to explore at Old Catholic Church?

You will see old architecture inside the church, admire patterns and paintings. Especially, you also can see beautiful sight at the top of the church and see the dawn at the early morning. You can still see bits of stained glass that are hanging from the window.

Church is quite small but worthy to take a look. Outlook still remains original bricks & colors unlike the casino hotel which already re-constructed and lost the original look. There's a reservoir in front of church (across the road) . Then must go behind up the church can see a great view when standing a high point of this mountain:) Enjoy the view and the breeze!!
