This is the oldest church in Central Java, dating back to 1753. Built in the shape of a Greek cross, the interior of this imposing Dutch structure is dominated by an enormous Baroque organ and pulpit. Although the organ was never able to be restored, it stands as a quiet reminder of the church's past. Well worth a visit.

This church is located in the old town area around other old buildings. The church shows the Dutch architecture in the old Semarang.

There is something about church grounds that often offer a sense of serenity. This is not exception. I love the way the building is preserved without too much of a modern touch. The grounds are well landscaped and it is comfortable for a walkabout and photos.

Beautiful old Dutch church. Very small. Has magnificent pipe organ. Central location. Interesting but not a "don' miss."

The church is a lovely building, unfortunately I did not see inside as it was locked. There is a small shaded square alongside the church which is great for a rest in the shade.
