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.

  • I accompanied my friends from Denmark and German to go in there. It's European architecture I would say: beautiful, some gothic style, modern. Parking lot is big enough. One way big street area. The traffic is not really bad.
  • I came here with my friend, even though we are different religions, clean environment makes me comfortable and I a visit to mosque istiqlal to do my duty as muslim
  • An old and magnificant church. A very good design exterior but quite simple at the interior and the altar. A very cozy place for pray, especially at the morning. And it will be beetter and more comfortable if this church provide an AC because the weather of Jakarta is pretty hot.
  • This is good church and its architecture is so european. The most well known church in jakarta
  • In stark contrast to the hustle and bustle of the Istiqlal mosque across the street this Christian church is a quiet and cool place, perfect to calm your thoughts. Completed in 1901 in Neo-Gothic style it was designed by architect Antonius Dijkmans. The interior less imposing than exterior.
