This Gorgeous Jakarta Cathedral is located at Jakarta, Indonesia. It is one of the best peaceful place you can find. It's much worth to travel there. One of the must place to visit in Jakarta. There is no entry fee...... Obviously because this is church. Candles are free, you can light as much as candles as you can. But, the flowers has prices ranging from 10,000 IDR, which is not even $1. Photographies are allowed. Note: The museum in the church won't open sometimes. So don't visit just for the museum. Transport: The easiest way to destined this place is through busway facility. The stop is called "Juanda". The central part of all busway connector is called "Harmoni", from Harmoni getting on Juanda is very easy. Benefits: It is "two in one" best visit, because opposite to it. There is a largest mosque in South east asia called "Istiqlal mosque".

Entrance not easily located at first, but enter next to any of the vehicle entry/exit gates. There is a registration desk which you must show ID, they make a copy, immediately return your ID to you and issue you a visitor badge. The cathedral has an amazing array of Gothic architecture. The entire ceiling is comprised of wood. There are sculptures, paintings, stained glass windows, pipe organs at the side (most churches I’ve visited have had the organs at the front or rear of the church). The benches are made of wood and wicker. A visit is certainly recommended.

Well maintain and very closed to the center and opposite to the Istiqlal Mosque. Good history behind the Cathedral but nothing special, compared to other big size churches / cathedrals, in my opinion.

Very well preserved cathedral as compared to the one in Europe’s the detail of the inside has shown how this is well maintained similarly to the Europe Catholic Churches. The churches is free entrance and right opposite of the biggest mosque in Asia. A great way to show different gait can co-exist within a close distance! Beautiful structure still preserved from outside and very surprise to see such structures remains standing in good condition in Indonesia being the Muslim dominance !
