This church located near the biggest mosque in Jakarta. This classic church is still very amazingly beautiful inside and outside. You can visit this church to pray inside every morning but there is limited time to pray

Came here during last night mass, right now this cathedral still undergoing some renovation, so expect a bit of inconvinece. Without ac, the air inside is so chilling. Also this cathedral is built with gothic influence like any other cathedral in central europe. Love it.

There is a big sign welcome at the entrance on the left side of the church. Its a quite modest, with a few person praying inside. I felt so peaceful inside.

We visited the Cathedral after visiting the Mosque opposite as part of a city tour. Both are well worth a visit.

Nearest Gambir railway station and Istiqlal Mosque also Pasar Baru Market. Really awesome Church with historical ornament, feel good to be there. if you want just to take photographs , I'll suggest don't go there on Sunday morning because full of people for praying.

If you can stop by this church, you can see how authentic this place. if you are catholic, i'll suggest you to come and pray but you have to come earlier, coz it is soo crowded

Thank Steven z
