A Javanese style Catholic church in a Hindu temple setting. Remarkable eclectic mixture. Represent the Javanese cultural tolerance at its based. Sacred and quiet at midnight. Great for meditating and pilgrimage. Don't forget the spring water too.

Catholic architecture wasn't the first thing I was expecting in Yogyakarta. But this church is beautiful. It is a wonderful example of the Catholic Church's ancient tradition of inculturation: accepting what is beautiful in local cultures while preserving the essentials of Christian doctrine. The church...More
