Church of the Saviour
The Church of the Saviour, commonly known as the North Church (Beitang) or the Xishiku Catholic Church (also called Xishiku Church), is a historic Catholic church and the largest Catholic Church in Beijing.Of all the cathedrals and churches located in Beijing, the Xishiku Catholic Church is one of the most ornate and magnificent churches. The style of the building is in typical Gothic style and it is famous for its grand architecture.The Xishiku Catholic Church, built by the Jesuits in 1703, was originally located at Canchiguo in Zhongnanhai (opposite the former Beijing Library), a land bestowed by Emperor Kangxi of the Qing Dynasty, who also hand wrote the calligraphic plaque and couplets for the building. In 1887 the church was moved to the current place because Empress Dowager Cixi ordered to enlarge Zhongnanhai, which is now an area used as the headquarters of the Chinese Communist Party and formerly home to leading Communists like Chairman Mao, Deng Xiaoping and Zhou Enlai. After it added one more level in 1900 it became the current Xishiku Catholic Church.
