Introduction

Wangfujing Cathedral, also known as Dongtang (East Church in Chinese) and St. Joseph’s Cathedral, is a Catholic cathedral located on Wangfujing shopping street.
The cathedral is the second oldest in Beijing and was founded by the Jesuits in 1653. The original church, a much smaller construction, was destroyed by natural disaster and war, and was eventually rebuilt in its present Romanesque form in 1904. It was restored in 1980 and again in 2004, in time for the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
