Survey the colorful and vibrant biblical imagery, as well as quotes from the Bible, once you enter this unusual, storied structure. Visitors are able to collect holy water from the shrine.

  • Person (a guy) who was taking care of the church was very rude. We went to see the "holy water" but he rudely came to us and said we must leave there. You are Not allowed to take picturesโ€‹ in any sections of this church as well. Not happy of spending so much time to go there.
  • No doubt that this is one of the unique churches (because of its Indian architecture). Surprisingly, I didn't really feel blown away with this church. Still, it is "must visit" place when you're in Medan. The place was pretty crowded due to Christmas day. So, I wish you Merry Christmas for those who celebrate it ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š
  • Neither a mosque nor a temple. This Indian-style church is the only one you can find outside India.
  • This Church Building is Similar to Temples in India. Unique :D
  • It's about 30 minutes out of Medan city. Nice church. Worth the 30 minutes ride.
