  • A very unique worship place. mixing between 4/5 religion into one beautiful building. it located a bit far from the city crowded makes this place is so calm and quiet from business. give thumbsup for this beautiful building!
  • Although its quite hidden/far, it really offers unique experiences. You can pray inside the chapel at second floor. But remember to take off your shoes & do not take selfies there. Its prohibited on my second visit (dec 2017). You can have a bottle of holy water, write your pray, and explore each buildings there. parking lot is just across the Graha. They will offer you a pashmina to cover if you happen to wear something to revealing. And its free.
  • So peaceful in here. A really great place to calm yourself and feel the presence of God. And the place also beautiful
  • Beautiful architecture building. Recommended to see, to teach us how well culture blended in here.
  • A pleasant surprise in Medan the combination of Hindu and Catholicism is definitely a novelty. The church is well cared for with plenty of parking spaces. A must visit for someone who are into architecture and culture.
