Reviews • 1
As a tribute to Jakarta's diversity, this huge Cathedral lies exactly in front of the Istiqlal Mosque. This is not just a co-incidence, but a conscious decision by the President of Jakarta to portray the nation's unity in diversity. Built in 1901, it is the seat of the Arch Bishop of Jakarta and a center for the Roman Catholics residing here. The architecture is the enchanting Neo-Gothic style, a sharp contrast to the different structures around.
