Magnificent Since 1908

My friends and I traveled to Qingdao last month. Being in Qingdao will surely be one of my most unforgettable travels within China. The city was beautiful. The weather was great. The food was amazing.

On our last day there, we visited a church that was formerly called Gospel Church but is now known as Qingdao International Church. The church was built in 1908 and was designed by a German architect. The design was inspired by a western medieval castle. The whole site of the church has been designated as a protected area as one of the many historical relics of Shandong Province.

Tourists and locals alike visit the church every day.

Most of the locals visit the church area for their wedding photo shoots.

I took this photo from inside the bell tower. It was just lovely to watch new couples taking photos together.

    1. Thank you. 😊 Thanks for dropping by, too.

      I was fascinated by the number of married couples who come and go to every church site we visited in Qingdao. I have never seen so many married couples taking wedding photos in the same place at the same time. πŸ˜„
