Jakarta Cathedral, Jakarta

4.4
#2 of 17 in Historic Sites in Jakarta
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's historical yet beautiful sacred old building. Many shady trees and also blooms in the yard will refresh your sight. Air conditioner is installed inside this gorgeous church so you don't have to be upset about being sweaty 🤣 come and feel the devine serenity! God bless u!
  • Its official name is Gereja Santa Maria Pelindung Diangkat Ke Surga (from Dutch, De Kerk van Onze Lieve Vrouwe ten Hemelopneming, in English: The Church of Our Lady of Assumption). This current cathedral was consecrated in 1901 and built in the neo-gothic style, a common architectural style to build churches at that time. The Jakarta Cathedral is located in Central Jakarta near Merdeka Square and Merdeka Palace, it stands right in the front of the Istiqlal Mosque.
  • One of many historical buildings in Jakarta. Well preserved building that still has its own beauty. A neo-gothic style of a Roman Catholic church. It is my beloved parish :D
