Established in 1865, the Yanjing (literally "salt well") Catholic Church is the only catholic church still in use in the region. Its architecture features a Tibetan exterior design combined with a Gothic one in the interior. The church has one priest and two sisters, and holds masses on Christmas and Easter besides weekly services in the Tibetan language for its 559 Catholic practitioners. (Xinhua/Wen Tao)
