Roman Catholic Cathedral of Jakarta (Gereja Cathedral or Jakarta Cathedral) is located in the city center across the street from the main city mosque Istiklal, peacefully coexisting with it, and even sharing parking space for the transport of believers. Also, during Christian holidays, the mosque provides its own parking for visitors to the cathedral. We can say that these two temples are a real symbol of religious tolerance in Jakarta and Indonesia. But it's worth seeing the cathedral not only because of this.

The temple was originally built in 1829, and it was the first Catholic church in Batavia (the old name of Jakarta). In the following years, the building was renovated, and in 1891-1901 it was completely rebuilt after the destruction in 1890. The final appearance of today was given to it by reconstruction in 1988 and in 2002, and the next repair in 2017. The style of architecture is Neo–Gothic. Especially interesting are its three openwork spires made of steel. The interior is made in a classic form for such temples, and of course there is an old organ. Tourists can go inside, taking pictures is not prohibited. If you get here on Saturday, you will almost certainly see the wedding ceremony.
