  • The Church of Zion, or better known as Portuguese Church is an ancient church with a grand and sturdy architecture. The Church is located at Jalan Pangeran Jayakarta has a capacity of around 1.000 people. Interesting facts about the Church of Zion is that this building is the oldest building which is still used in accordance with the original purpose of its construction, indeed many other older buildings, but they've been switching function. The numbers above the door of the Church of Zion is a number which indicates the age of the Church.
