This church is really nice. One of the best catholic churches in Jakarta. Always crowded though, causing traffic jam.

I recommend this place, a very good attraction, no admissions, clean, full of history and especially the museum at the 2nd floor is just fantastic. For European visitor maybe is just like a church similar in their country.

I was so fortunate that it was a sunday and got to witness the Mass Prayers said at the cathedral. I was so amazed that though this church was so huge and yet the crowd overspilled to till the exterior. The church was so beautiful and glorious and well maintained. Kudos to the Indonesian Govt for looking after this Church... More

This is a roman catholic church built in 1901 with neo gothic design. Interesting architecture, not many found in Jakarta. Other than religious site, it is a good place to take photos. It is opposite to Grand Mosque Istiqlal. These 2 grandest religious buildings stand next to each other symbolize the harmony of different religion in Indonesia.

This place is absolutely astonishing. Very old, lots of wood work and I honestly don't know how they keep it up since Jakarta is very Muslim. They have a guy repairing the pews by hand since they have this type of natural mesh which looks beautiful and it also makes them very comfortable.
