Kon Tum Wooden Church is located on Nguyen Hue Street, Kon Tum City, Kon Tum province. The church is well known for its unique architecture of wooden materials and good fine-arts.

Kon Tum Wooden Church was built from 1913 to 1918. Initiated by a French priest, the church was made with hundreds of cubic meters of such high-quality wood as rose-wood and ca chit, a valuable wood once growing in abundance across the Central Highlands but rather rare these days.

The church’s architecture combines Roman and Gothic arches and features of the traditional style of the Central Highlands region of Vietnam. The whole structure stands one meter above the ground on wooden pillars like many hill tribes’ houses and communal houses (nha rong). The church’s inside was also decorated in the Central Highlands style to make it suitable to the traditional culture of the people in the region.

The church stands on a vast area with various closed-loop works: church, lounge, exhibition center of ethnic groups and religions, communal house. There are also an orphanage, a brocade weaving and sewing facility and a carpentry workshop.
