As usual that this place shows a typical cathedral church with a cross building style. Always good to see the difference that this is not a typical European cathedral church style and space is a little smaller for a cathedral. My tip is to visit them at noon because it is quieter and less people.

I visited the church after the mosque which is opposite the street. The entry is free. The architecture and interior were nice and graceful. That's about it though. Nothing would probably impress you so much if you have visited Europe or UK. Been there seen that just marks off my another checkpoint. After all there is only this much you... More

The cathedral is across from the Mosque. The gothic architecture is amazing but you should also be sure to see the shrine to Mary that is located in the back gardens. This is an active cathedral so travelers should be respectful of the nuns and parishioners who may be worshiping during their visit.

Set in peaceful and soothing atmosphere, this respectable landmark and its Istiqlal Mosque neighbor are show-cases of religious tolerance. And don't forget the main attraction of Jakarta, the MONAS.
