An abandoned church by the sea in Vietnam

The abandoned Heart church (Trai Tim) can be found on the coast of Xuong Dien (Xương Điền) in the Hai Ly commune and near the town of Nam Dinh, about 120 km from Hanoi in Vietnam

The Heart church, designed by French architects, was completed in 1943. It was one of many small and big churches in the sprawling beachside community. Most of them though had to relocate do to damage caused by coastal erosion. The Heart Church was abandoned in 1996 after it was heavily damaged during a storm. 

Today, the deserted church has become a tourist attraction as well as a background for many wedding photos and TV dramas.
