I visited the church just right after their prayers, I feel so peace when I step into the church. The designs and others are just so beautiful, worth to pay a visit!

This cathedral dates from 1901 so can be considered "modern" from my education background which is used to have seen churchs and cathedrals from X century. It resembles to neoghotic style with high towers and height which make the temperature to be quite nice if compared with outside warmness. It is good to visit combined with the mosque that is...

Christians in Jakarta are often attending services at Friday noon like their Moslem countrymen. The Jakarta Cathedral is a surprisingly beautiful colonial cathedral with interesting girder-like spires that make it look not quite finished. Go there on a Friday, listen to the hymns in Indonesian bahasa then head across the street to Istiklal mosque to see 1000's of prayer goers.... More
