Although I'm a Moslem, I visited here once for an excursion trip from my college. I'm kinda amazed for the building and the decoration inside! And if you're lucky enough you'll see the wedding ceremony and it's couples :D

This is more better compare with Saigon Cathedral. Both internal and external views are amazing. Beside the cathedral is a mosque but I am not sure if non-muslims are allowed to enter.

This is an impressive cathedral situated in the centre of Jakarta. It is located directly opposite the Masjid Istiqlal. The locals told me that these two places of worship are co-located to promote tolerance, acceptance and peace. It is definitely worth a visit.

We visited the Cathedral before heading over to the Mosque for a tour. When we returned, our private tour guide's car was blocked in by worshippers. Instead of waiting in the parking lot for an hour, we went in and had mass with the congregation. Using the Bible App on our phone and following the program, we had a peaceful... More

I am not enthusiastic about churches. We were already at the mosque so we crossed the road to take a peak inside. I found this to be more unique than any church I've seen in the US and any of the Southeast Asian countries I've been to. There is so much wood used in the architecture. It's normal for some...

Beautiful Cathedral inside and outside. Makes a beautiful contrast with the Masjid Istiqlal on the other side of the street. Both worth visiting.

Located directly across the street from the national mosque, it's an ok place to visit dependent on traffic. If visiting here or the mosque, might as well see both. No fee for entrance. As others have stated, no pamphlets or guides inside, but you can walk along the outer walls/pews and see various paintings. It's reminiscent of European cathedrals in... More

This is the 1st stop after my business trip. The Jakarta Cathedral is spectacular. It looks like I am in Europe visiting a similar cathedral. Its grand and looks like those in Spain. You are able to enter from the side and there are people worshiping at about 5pm when I visited. The inside looks grand too. After this you... More
