I like this Gothic church for it's sophisticat design, the marble floor, the antique benches and it is still actively holding regular masses. The other thing is the orkel (music instrument). Don't forget, there is also a museum on the second floor.

I like the Cathdral. I enjoyed all the historic part of it and the way it was built. Its a must see if you visit Jakarta best time to go there is during the week when everyone is working so the traffic will be less .

The towering structure itself is magnificent. Its right in the city centre. Inside, the church will take your breath away with the statues, organs, altars, even to the elaborately designed ceiling. You need to spend a decent time just sitting down & taking it all in.

A little oasis amongst the traffic of Jakarta - loved the peace and quiet and offered a moment to reflect on life - well worth a visit!

Because of the global warming (perhaps), the hot whether in Jakarta finally make the bishops/cardinal agree to install the air-condition in Cathedral. The building and its architecture are very beautiful, and also their mosaics are incredible. every time you enter the Cathedral you can feel the solemn atmosphere. Looks like the music instruments are still using the pipe organ ???... More

The church is located just across the street from the Istiqal which is the largest Mosque in Jakarta. The architecture is great coming from the old era in Jakarta.

Just opposite the central mosque and a super contrast to all that you see in the mosque. Very nice Cathedral with some beautiful aspects.

Nice place to visit- bang opposite the biggest mosque in south east Asia. Get in the mosque compound for best pictures of the church. If youre coming by car, there is some parking.

Interesting to see a Catholic Cathedral in Jakarta, its architecture and the history of the site on which it stands.
