I passed by this area and found it was nice to photo. Try to find a place to park the car is a bit hard. 5 mins walk to snap this picture well worth it.

The wooden ceiling was the unique part of the cathedral. during our visit last Saturday, all saints statues were covered by purple clothes, its a lenten practice I think. Wasnt able to see the museum, since it was close that time. Its worth to drop by this place, as a side trip to the mosque opposite it. Saw free city... More

This cathedral, also known by its Bahasa Indonesia name Gereja St. Perawan Maria Diangkat ke Surga, is beautiful and very well maintained. It is indeed a visual treat both on the outside as well as on the inside. Of European design/architecture and wonderfully preserved, honestly, I had not expected that it would be this beautiful!

The church is located right at the center of the city. This building itself is quite old, I believe has been renovated several times due to fire and damages during war. But the interior itself is still very nice. The architecture is a gothic European style. Right in front of this church, is the largest mosque in Indonesia. What a... More

The most beautiful Catholic church in the country. Just a little over 100 years old. Official name: De Kerk van Onze Lieve Vrouwe ten Hemelopneming.

Beautiful architecture and European-style cathedral in the bustling city of Jakarta. It is interesting that Jakarta's only cathedral is located just right across the largest mosque in Indonesia. The cathedral dates back to the Dutch colonial era. The church is open 7 days a week for anyone who wish to visit. It's definitely a nice quiet place of worship.
