Tataocheng Presbyterian Church, Datong, Taipei

3/18/2011 Taiwan Explorer

While walking around Tataocheng, I came across the Tataocheng Presbyterian Church 臺灣基督長老教會大稻埕教會. The church was built in 1915 during the Japanese time, but was in 2002 expanded, hence the old part at the bottom and the new part in from of a huge tower (source). It's definitely an interesting piece of architecture and has more history than one might think. In case you wonder, where to find the church, check my Datong map.

The bottom is the old part.

The church from afar: It looks impressive.
