After i did several researches i find out that the Christian country of Philippines does not hold the largest church even regionally! For example in the neighboring Vietnam where French infuence is affluent there are no doubt that amazing churches would sprung up, and unlike the Philippines construction of old gothic style churches are still popular! here are samples of churches in Vietnam:

Thanks for this information, I have learned a lot. Thank God for those Christians that were able to construct large and beautiful buildings. They obey Haggai as God instructed him to encourage the believers to build God's physical structure for worship. God will bless the writer who has prevailed such important development.

Vietnam was colonised not so long ago so their churches are more new. The Philippines was colonised in 1521.
Many churches in the Philippines got destroyed too during the world war 2. The Philippines was destroyed more than any other country in Asia because the Americans were there and sadly, none of them ever rebuilt the colonial architectures they destroyed.
