Great architecture, very peaceful

Being one of the oldest church in Jakarta, the physical condition is still very well maintained. If you come here for morning prayer, you will have birds flying inside the church.

Best place to pray and more personal relationship with God. You can pray in front of Maria Cave and prays The Lord

A sacred place which made me feel at peace the moment I entered it. A very beautifully constructed cathedral.

It is an old cathedral in Jakarta and nice place, well maintain and the office is near there. On Sunday is full pack of worshiper so beware of your personal belongings. Better if you seat inside so you don't get distract by your surrounding. It is beautiful cathedral.
