Ngã Sáu Church (Joan of Arc Church)

Yet another pink church in Saigon.  This is the Joan of Arc Church and was built from 1922 to 1928.  The church was inaugurated in May 1928 and was dedicated to Jeanne d'Arc (St. Joan of Arc).  A statue of her can be seen above the entrance.  Locally, the church is known as Nga Sau and comes from the 6 streets that "tumble" across one another in front of the church.  The church is located at 116B Hung Vuong Street in District 5.
