Jakarta Cathedral, Jakarta

(4.3/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
Visit Jakarta Cathedral, an impressive Roman Catholic place of worship in the center of the city. Consecrated in 1901, the cathedral displays an attractive Neo-Gothic architectural style, with two main spires stretching high into the sky, assisting the effect of the symmetrical facade. Head inside to see the Belgian-made Neo-Gothic-style organ and arresting vaulted ceilings. An upstairs museum details the history of the cathedral and Christianity in the country.

  • It is a church representative to Jakarta. It is a church built in the Cathedral is named Netherlands. It was almost as foreign and interior décor and European Churches and other Netherlands architecture of buildings, not the grey stone is stunning.

  • 这个教堂本身风景一般,但是由于和正对面的大清真寺遥相呼应就显得很有趣。可惜无法把两个建筑拍进一张照片里。当地人的婚礼也会在这里进行,碰巧可以感受当地的风土人情。 
  • Sangat senang punya kesempatan kesini, bangunannya sangat indah, selayaknya gereja tua yang berada di Eropa, suasananya sangat teduh dan khusuk untuk berdoa.

  • Awe inspiring Neo-Gothic architecture. Located right across the Istiqlal Mosque. A beautiful symbol of peaceful coexistence between christians and muslims.
  • This is the main Catholic Church for Jakarta, Depok, Tangerang and Bekasi area. This Church is an old Church. The interior is Europe style. In here you can see the organ pipe.
  • “Peaceful refuge in a big city” This is a beautiful church, and it has a nice little book shop attached. I often go here when in Jakarta, for mass or just to mediatate and pray. It’s peaceful and offers the tranquillity one sometimes craves when in such a big city as Jakarta.
  • Old & historical Catholic church, dim & cool atmosphere, perhaps some swallow loved to nested inside
  • and this is the great! Berkah Dalem
