  Calvary Church

 

Thailand

The interior of Bot Kalwar, i.e. the Calvary Church in Bangkok, which was founded in 1786, when Portuguese settlers moved here from Ayutthaya after this former Siamese capital fell to the Burmese in 1767.

 

Besides being named after Golgotha, the place where Jesus Christ was crucified, the church also has Jesus himself, or at least his statue, in the pulpit.
