Free entrance to this church; Neo-Gothic and very peaceful in the constant chaos that is central Jakarta. They have a little shop where you can buy religious items (rosaries, books etc), and a canteen where you can get soft drinks and a few snacks.

This is one of the happy place for me, i love the whole atmosphere of being there the building is built in French neo gothic style but with unusual features namely steel spires and wooden ceiling to anticipate earthquake. The exterior is beautiful with two towers which are not twins but each bears symbolism of St.Mary as the fortress of... More

This comfortable, relaxing building is a great place to relax, reflect, and recharge in. I happened to visit during a wedding ceremony and enjoyed seeing the similar and different aspects of a Christian wedding in the US and Indonesia.

Other than it is a sacred place to pray and for religious activities, that place is also a historical place. From the architecture, people will notice that it is from Dutch era. We entered the church and my boyfriend also lit a cande and said a prayer there. There is also outdoor sanctuary with status of Virgin Mary on the... More

A beautiful monument to remind us that there's more than one way to spread the word of peace. The beautiful grotto offers stark contrast to the concrete jungle, providing somewhere quiet for calming meditation.

Amidst the hustle and bustle of Jakarta's masses, it is great to enter into the peaceful haven of the Jakarta Cathedral. It also takes you back in time as it isn't a new building. The ceiling, made of teak, creates a warm feeling and their doors are always welcoming. Great architecture too.

Despite the no of tourists walking in and out it was a very peaceful place to visit, the architecture of the church is a stand out in a otherwise very plain looking city. Also nice to see a cathedral right opposite a mosque. Do visit the grotto which is outside on the back left side. And don't forget to make... More

The feeling knock u out of breath once u enter the main door, it is beyond words. I've reached home at last. The pieta on the right side of the entrance is so beautiful. Mother Mary's face intensely reflect her love for Jesus, u can feel her devotion. Have to see it👍🏻👍🏻
