I came here to stop by and pray. It would be best if you can join the holy mass, experience the building's amazing acoustics.

I like the architecture and you can came during the day visit and pray or take any pictures inside the church just ask for permission to the security.

It is one of the biggest church in south east Asia, based on our Bus Tour Guide. There is also a museum inside it. And also the clasic organ. If you plan to join Sunday Mass in here, you better choose the 7.30AM. later schedules will be very full and crowded.

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.

The church is located just opposite to the main Mosque of the city. It is a peculiar setting that does not speak of clash but rather of a mutual understanding.
