Tan Dinh教堂，意為越南耶穌聖心教堂，是在19世紀80年代法國殖民時期建造的教堂，當時越南是法國印度支那的一部分。 教堂位於胡志明市第3區Hai Ba Trung街289號，屬於胡志明市羅馬天主教大主教管區。 教堂建築採用羅馬風格的建築，真正脫穎而出，粉紅色。 它是胡志明市第二大教堂，僅次於1區的西貢聖母大教堂。
The history of Tan Dinh Church may be traced back to 1874, when a Catholic mission was set up here under Father Donatien Éveillard, who supervised the construction of the first church and was inaugurated in December 1876. Éveillard also invited the Sisters of Saint-Paul de Chartres to set up an orphanage and boarding school next to the church. This Sainte Enfance de Tan-Dinh, or École de Tan-Dinh, opened in 1877 and by the early 1880s it had around 300 children. Perhaps Éveillard’s greatest achievement was the establishment at Tan Dịnh a religious publishing house known as the Imprimerie de la Mission, where he trained disadvantaged children from the Sainte Enfance de Tan-Dinh for the publishing trade. By the early 1890s, the original church and school buildings were no longer fit for purpose, so Éveillard’s successor, Father Louis-Eugène Louvet (1838-1900), organized a lottery to raise funds to rebuild them. Much of the present Tan Dinh Church dates from 1896-1898, when this reconstruction was carried out at a cost of 8,600 piastres (22,000 Francs).
Tan Dinh教堂的歷史可以追溯到1874年，當時在DonatienÉveillard神父的指導下建立了天主教的使命，他監督了第一座教堂的建設並於1876年12月落成.Éveillard還邀請了聖保羅修女會德沙特爾在教堂旁設立孤兒院和寄宿學校。這個Sainte Enfance de Tan-Dinh，或ÉcoledeTan-Dinh，於1877年開業，到19世紀80年代初，它有大約300名兒童。也許Éveillard最大的成就是在TanDịnh成立了一家名為Imprimerie de la Mission的宗教出版社，在那裡他培訓了來自Sainte Enfance de Tan-Dinh的弱勢兒童出版業。到19世紀90年代早期，原來的教堂和學校建築不再適合用途，因此Éveillard的繼任者路易斯 – 尤金露祿神父（1838-1900）組織了一次抽獎，以籌集資金重建它們。目前Tan Dinh教堂的大部分時間可追溯至1896年至1898年，當時重建工作的費用為8,600 piastres（22,000法郎）。
Designed in Romanesque style with Gothic and Renaissance elements, Tan Dinh Church comprises a nave with a tall barrel-vaulted roof (today hidden by a false ceiling), separated by arcades from side aisles and outer corridors. The design also incorporates a triforium or shallow-arched upper gallery and features two apsidal chapels which extrude from either side of the nave, close to the entrance. The one to your right as you enter the church is dedicated to Mary and Joseph, while the one to your left is dedicated to St Theresa. The Saint statues and the 14 Stations of the Cross which currently adorn the outer side aisle pillars date from the 1890s.
Tan Dinh教堂採用羅馬式風格設計，具有哥特式和文藝復興時期的元素，包括一個高高的桶形拱頂屋頂（今天隱藏在假天花板下），由拱廊與側面走廊和外部走廊隔開。 該設計還包括一個三角形或淺拱形的上廊，並有兩個無人教堂，從教堂中殿的兩側擠出，靠近入口。 進入教堂時右邊的那個是獻給瑪麗和約瑟夫的，而左邊的一個獻給聖特麗莎。 目前裝飾在外側過道柱子上的聖像和十字架十字架的歷史可以追溯到19世紀90年代。
Although Tan Dinh church underwent many periods of restoration and repair, its architecture and construction still remain its origin, even the pink color inside and outside.
You can visit here any time as it is open every day. The mass times per week are different. Whether you are catholic or not, you are always invited to join in the mass. However, once taking part in the mass, you need to be on time in order to be more polite as the atmosphere is quite tranquil in this holy place. Another thing is that since it is a religious site, you should wear formal clothes if you have an intention of entering inside the church. If not, you can stand outside and feel free to take photos with one of the most dazzling architecture in the heart of Saigon.
To be honest, Tan Dinh Church becomes not only a stunning architectural work that is listed as one of the historical, cultural and tourist addresses in Saigon, but also the sacred place for parishioners to display their belief and join in a lot of charity activities. Don’t forget to stop by the church if you have a chance to visit Ho Chi Minh City, the most exciting city in Vietnam. You would fall in love with that incredible site!
