St. John Cathedral, Hong Kong

St John's Cathedral, Hong Kong, a cross-shaped structure,  stands in the heart of the city's financial downtown district. It can be seen as soon as you steeped out from Central Station going to the Peak Tram lower terminus.

When you see the cathedral, you would think that it's just built recently because of the bright clean color, but it's not. It was completed in 1849 and extended in 1873. It was damaged during World War II in 1941 and all services only resumed in 1945.
We only saw this church on our way to the Peak Tram Terminus and knowing my friend, who likes visiting at least one church during our travel, I know we'll go back there.
True enough, on our way back to the hotel, we dropped by the cathedral. It's already getting dark so I only took a few pictures. I took a couple of pictures inside the cathedral, but it's too dark to see it clearly. I don't want to use the flash, because there's a choir rehearsal and I don't want to bother them. When it comes to churches, I really don't much pictures inside, specially when there are people praying, I have to respect them.
