Newly-released stamp set features churches in Vietnam.

The stamp set is designed by painter Nguyen Du from the VNPT. It will be available from December 24 this year through June 2024.

Christianity was first introduced to Vietnam in the 16th century. Vietnam is now home to many Christian churches, which were built across the country in Western style or a combination of Vietnamese and European architecture.

The issue of the stamp set aims to introduce the public to religious buildings in Vietnam.

Previously, the VNPT released several stamps featuring religious architecture, including the ‘Architecture of Southeast Asia’ set in 1993, the ‘Vietnamese architecture’ set in 1999, and ‘The 16th United Nations Day of Vesak Celebrations’ set in 2019.
