Attended evening Sun mass with friend. Very solemn and calming. Organ was playing. I don't understand any Korean but enjoyed seeing people of faith worshipping. No kneeling took place during the service.

While you probably can't go inside if it is late, the building is lit up, making the stained glass images really stand out.

아주아주 이쁘다 !!! Gyesan Catholic Church was built by Priest Robert, A.P. in 1899 which was constructed with wood using a Korean-style design.

Nothing special, although important cathedral in the centre of Daegu. Worth paying a short visit, if you are in the area

Found it interesting and convenient that there was a TV in the church for those in the back who cannot see the altar and the priest. The interior is beautiful and unique to Korea. Felt at home, considering I'm a foreigner to Daegu, South Korea.
