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.

The Katedral Jakarta (Jakarta Cathedral or The Church of Our Lady of Assumption) is a beautiful Victorian Gothic cathedral built by the Dutch in Central Jakarta in 1901. Each stained glass pane is unlike the others, though admittedly rather simple. There's a pieta in the back corner in front of which some people sit for a quiet moment. The altar... More

Jakarta has a few old buildings worth visiting, the Catherdral has a very distictive exterior, easy to spot as you drive around the area. It is set in peaceful grounds but the interior is, architecturally, rather disappointing and dull compared with many Catholic churches in Europe.

Went to this Church for Ascension Day. A very beautiful church. Mass was conducted in Bahasa Indonesia, which was not a real problem for me, as I am from Malaysia. From Pullman Hotel to the church took less than 30 minutes. The choir was fantastic.

The grounds are quite nice and inside the cathedral the Stations of the Cross is what draws one to the beautiful artwork. There are more beautiful cathedrals in Europe but this is one to see in Asia.
