This was probably the best place I visited and really felt good after the visit. It's a beautiful structure and a lot of devotees attend the mass.

One of Jakarta must visit place. This church is legendary and notable for its architecture. Once you enter the place, you will feel a nostalgic and peaceful feeling. It could be frustrating to find parking space in Sunday though.

We went there spontaneously. Just walked around to see a Mosque and found the Cathedral. It looks amazing, when I went inside people were praying there and everybody was looking at me surprisingly, as I am wearing a hijab.

Service was going on when we reached by 7.00 pm. The building was much bigger than we expected and has a lot of nice architectural features. Was not bright enough inside to really enjoy the details
