  • Good church. Church which become one of famous religy travel destination at Medan. You can pray, take a photo or buy some merchandise. One of special things here is the water.

  • 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 too revealing. And its free.
