Photo taken on Oct. 23, 2009 shows the outside view of the Cizhong Catholic Church in Yanmen Township of Deqin County in southwest China's Yunnan Province. First built in 1867 and rebuilt in 1909, the Cizhong Catholic Church is a model which combines the architecture features of both western countries and China's Tibet, Han and Bai ethnic groups. The church and its wing-room, gate, cellar and grape yard were well preserved by local government. It was listed as the key national cultural protection relics by the State Council in 2006.
