Fake Churches in China

Big, beautiful new Christian "churches" are being built on many beaches and nature preserves in China. I was surprised to notice many of them at a few local beaches. However, I learned that these "churches" are being built for the sole purpose of decoration for wedding photos, for people who are generally not Christians or church goers.
While there are many churches in China that do have services, pastors and congregations, these ones don't. Having a beautiful Christian church building in your wedding photos is definitely becoming the new ideal in China. Personally, I thought it was an interesting and pretty funny phenomenon.
