 The church has a simple design like a house with the interior of 3 compartments, 2 folds, 1 main door and 2 side doors.  All the objects displayed inside are delicately and meticulously carved like masterpieces.

 The church also owns a quite unique architecture, with a harmonious combination of 3 different architectures - Japan - China - Vietnam - with 5 vertical columns, 3 horizontal bars.  5 vertical columns with the meaning of 5 fingers on one hand represents five elements including Venus, Jupiter, Mercury, Mars and Saturn, and 3 horizontal bars are like 3 pointing fingers in the palm, symbolizing Heaven  - Earth - Human.  Besides, the church also has a dome design, which is also an ancient Chinese architecture, resembling a turtle, a symbol of longevity and luck.

 The architecture of the Tran family church is similar to the old houses and churches in the Old Quarter, but in the green and airy garden space with an area of ​​1,500 square meters. The Tran church attracts visitors by its quiet and fresh vibe, helping visitors relieve their worries and stress behind when coming to this relic site.
