All reviews neo gothic style sunday mass birds flying virgin mary pipe organ stained glass istiqlal mosque religious tolerance old church beautiful architecture located right side by side worth a visit national monument nice place catholic choir
Right near the Istiqlal Mosque is this cathedral with new steel-work steeples on a much older base. Nice courtyard, brightly decorated inside, they were preparing for Christmas with a gaudy nativity scene outside. Free.
Located in the city centre Jakarta Cathedral is definitely worth a visit. I took the free city tour bus from the centre of the city and it was here that there was one of the stops. I got down the bus and paid a visit....More
It is ironically just across from Istiqal temple...and the Mother Mary has been adapted to incorporate Indonesian culture, heritage, and color -its an incredible blend of culture and religion. The building is l70 years old!
Definitely worth a visit whilst you are in Jakarta. When I visited there were very few tourists (a recurring theme for Jakarta now that I think about it.) There were several worshippers praying silently and overall it made for a very peaceful experience.
