Lovely cathedral and air conditioned at that. Right across Istiqlal Mosque. Was very peaceful outside with the candles lit at night.

The Cathedral is located just across Istiqlal Mosque (largest mosque in Indonesia), reflecting the high tolerance level of the Indonesians. The Cathedral is still used for prayers. The second floor is dedicated for museum and other exhibitions. One of favourite location for photographers, historians and architects alike.

Not recommended to visit this attraction (along with Istiqlal Mosque as a set) intentionally without visiting the other attractions nearby. * DON'T VISIT THIS AREA ON MONDAY, reserve the trip for another day. Else like me you would miss out the visitation option to the nearby Monument Nasional,museums and galleria.

The Jakarta Cathedral was truly a beautiful oasis of calm in the midst of the madding traffic of downtown. It's unique 3 spires frame the somewhat gothic-looking building. It has a pipe organ and really good acoustics for a cathedral that size so listening to the homily is a pleasure. A big plus - its air-conditioned! ;-)

A classical and colonial landmark, this Cathedral is revered as the main/central church for Jakarts's Catholics as the archdiocese is located next to it. Eventhough it is not as glamurous or lavish as Europe's cathedrals, it still represents a little piece of Indonesia's diversity and religios tolerance with the Cathedral being located across from a mosque and vice-versa. The Cathedral... More

Forget your religion. Admire the beauty. Take yourself back to the past, imagine the mighty within this amazing building. But if you are a catholic, spare some time to follow the mass service in the morning. You'll find a unique atmosphere with the sound of the birds, as if they are praying with you.
