Not very interesting--just a neogothic church with some interesting inside components (pews, ceiling) made of local woods and rattan. Nothing terribly scenic inside, but it's still worth 15-20 mins of your time if you're walking around and nearby

You will definitely be disappointed if you expect something remotely close to the great European cathedrals. It's worth a visit though.

You have time to kill. Going there just because it's included in the Jakarta Hidden Day Tour. Not worth a visit.

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.
