Seoul Cathedral Anglican Church of Korea began
construction under Mark Trollope, the third bishop of the Anglican Church of Korea, in 1922. It was designed by a English architect Arthor Dixon. Dedication ceremony of the church was held On May 2, 1926 when the construction work hadn't been completed yet. At that time, the church building was a 3-storey building with
a 992 m² floor size. Later in 1993, the original blue print of the church was found at a library in England and the construction resumed
and would be completed in 1996.
The church building is a harmonious combination of Romanesque and traditional Korean style. The exterior of the church is shaped like a cross with various lines placed in harmony. Inside the cathedral, there are 12 stone columns symbolizing the 12 apostles, a
mosaic of Jesus on the front wall, and a brass plate in commemoration of Mark Trollope. Under the brass plate, the
remains of the bishop Mark Trollope are enshrined.
