Why Jakarta Cathedral (Gereja Katedral Jakarta) is special ?

Its official name is Gereja Santa Maria Pelindung Diangkat Ke Surga (from Dutch, De Kerk van Onze Lieve Vrouwe ten Hemelopneming, in English: The Church of Our Lady of Assumption). This current cathedral was consecrated in 1901 and built in the neo-gothic style, a common architectural style to build churches at that time. The Jakarta Cathedral is located in Central Jakarta near Merdeka Square and Merdeka Palace, it stands right in the front of the Istiqlal Mosque.



There is an upper floor which functions as the Jakarta Cathedral Museum, housing the relics of Catholic rituals, such as the silver cups, hats and robes of the Dutch East Indies, Indonesian Archbishops and Cardinals. The museum also displays the history of Roman Catholicism in Indonesia.

some time at a time, i attend sunday mass in here. The one the i like the building itself, also the time when the mass started. It has many choices time. They support also with the wide screen projector which will help u, to see the bible words in each reading. Something that im not comfort, to searching the parking for the car seems difficult, and limited seat inside the church. Some people really like to had some meals after sunday mass. Many kind of food was available.
