“Nice cathedral”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

Nice place to visit- bang opposite the biggest mosque in south east Asia. Get in the mosque compound for best pictures of the church. If youre coming by car, there is some parking.

“Beautiful Victorian Gothic Cathedral”
Reviewed June 23, 2014

The Katedral Jakarta (Jakarta Cathedral or The Church of Our Lady of Assumption) is a beautiful Victorian Gothic cathedral built by the Dutch in Central Jakarta in 1901. Each stained glass pane is unlike the others, though admittedly rather simple. There's a pieta in the back corner in front of which some people sit for a quiet moment. The altar is small relative to the size of the front area - many Churches have towering altars but the one here is only about 20 feet tall. Admittedly not as grand or intricate as other Churches in the Southeast Asian region, but even if you're not Catholic, it's worth a short visit to take photos of the nicely preserved exterior and interiors.

We also had the pleasure of attending service here during our visit. Unfortunately, all the Masses are held in Bahasa, which means we did not understand anything and had to go by our knowledge of the Mass.

Reviewed June 17, 2014

Need to have the schedule of mass in english.

Lot of good cars parking around during mass. You can also walk around to see the view of Jakarta.
