Hankou Orthodox Church is located at the intersection of Poyang Street and Tianjin Road in Jiang'an District of Wuhan, capita city of central China's Hubei Province. Although it is no longer a place for religious activities, it is still a popular choice for couples looking for an interesting place to get married.

According to officials from the Russian Religious Department, Hankou Orthodox Church is the oldest remaining Russian Orthodox church outside of Russia.

Occupying a 220-square-meter area, Hankou Orthodox Church is a unique structure distinguishable by its Byzantine-style architecture, which causes it to stand out among the other buildings in Jiang'an District. The entire complex was constructed in accordance with the traditional Latin cross layout; this is quite common for classic European churches and cathedrals. The walls feature elegant arches, pilasters, and carved lines. The main structure looks like a hexagon from above, with six walls connected to a rising, pointed ceiling. On top of the original structure, there was an onion dome, which is typical of Russian Orthodox churches, but sadly, this dome no longer exists.
