Xóm Chiếu

A Miniature Final Resting Place
During a motorbike tour, we came across a unique place in District 4 that I had never heard of before – Xóm Chiếu Church. The Spanish style church had body of a 100 year old female Saint that is on display. A bit gory – but interesting. They also had a cemetery inside the church. Apparently they had dug up an old outdoor cemetery when the land was going to be used for something else and they gave everyone mini caskets to store the ashes in and stacked them behind glass cubes. I had never seen anything like it!
