St. Nicholas Cathedral is one of the distinctive landmarks in the foggy city of Dalat in Lam Dong Province. The church on Tran Phu Street, which was inaugurated in 1942, adopts the Roman architecture characterized by arched doors and windows decorated with Oriental patterns. Besides, on top of the cathedral’s bell tower is an alloy statue of roaster rotating around an axis. That is why it is unofficially known as the “Roaster Church.” The metal roaster is said to be a symbol of the Gaulois (Gaul) of France, Saint Peter and awakening and repentance.
