For more than 128 years, this Gothic-style church has been an iconic structure in the Talad Noi neighborhood and is, in fact, listed as a cultural artifact by the Fine Arts Department. It’s Thai name, Wat Kalawar, is said to have been taken from the Portuguese word Calvario or Cavalry, the site where Jesus Christ was crucified. The  Holy Rosary’s interiors feature golden arches, massive stained glass windows, and statues of the Virgin Mary and Jesus offering a rosary to Saint Dominic and Saint Caterina.
