If you like history, this church will be of great interest to you. Its the oldest Protestant church in Jakarta. One can walk round this small sanctuary, read the names of (mostly) Dutch church members going back to its beginnings in the early 17th century, and imagine worship during colonial days gone by.

Immanuel church was built in the 1830s. Its circular form is loosely inspired by the Pantheon in Rome. The church is one of Jakarta's most stylish Dutch colonial buildings and is open most days.

It is so difficult to feel medieval sense at Jakarta but when you visit Immanuel Church, you will find the answer. This church has been maintained the medieval feeling during long times.

I liked it, I don't know why. It is not in a great condition but there is a feel to the place that I enjoyed. I went there on my taxi on the way back to the airport hotel. I'm glad I did. It showed me a different aspect of the city. I loved it.

Old church. Exterior is good but interior is fine for me. Not really special. But this is one of the historical Protestant church and they use for big celebration too. Many people use this church for married.
