After visiting MONAS, i was recommended my a local friend to visit this Cathedral. It was such an awesome architecture. 1st time I'm seeing this kind of building. It's build in neo gothic style. The interior design of this church was also beautiful. Really peaceful place to pray.

It is a good idea to visit such a peaceful, beautiful and spiritual place. It is huge and impressive. It is located just opposite the grand Istiqlal mosque.

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.
