The Latin Church (The Roman Catholic Church)
Built in 1866 near Shorjah in Al-Khulafaa Street. The site was used in 1731 by the Carmelite Fathers to practice their religious rituals in a small church. At that time, it was called the Temple or Monastery of St. Thomas; the apostle. The current church, completed in 1871, is shaped like a cross with towering dome about 32 feet high.
There are many statutes within the church and its walls are decorated with rare paintings. At the present, the church is at the disposal of Orthodox Copts working in Iraq. In the courtyard of this church lies the Iraqi scholar and linguist, father Ansatas Mary the Carmelite who was born in 1866 and died in 1947.
Trip Holidays also showcase a unique blend of travel and leisure photos and stories, updates, events and announcements about roads, shopping malls, hotels, bed and breakfast, restaurants, groceries and more. Not just a travel guide but one-of-a-kind discovery of people and places.
