Ive been here a few times, for weddings and also just to visit. It's not really a number one tourist destination in Yogya, maybe class 3, but I enjoy it. It offers a fascinating insight into the cross-spiritualism of Java, where a Catholic person can...More

Catholic architecture wasn't the first thing I was expecting in Yogyakarta. But this church is beautiful. It is a wonderful example of the Catholic Church's ancient tradition of inculturation: accepting what is beautiful in local cultures while preserving the essentials of Christian doctrine. The church...More

This church is only 10 mins from my house so I come here quite often, not to attend mass tho. Most of the time I would just talk to locals and visitors (even in normal weekdays there would be significant visitors), and listen to their...More

The place is a bit far from the beaten path, but the church is worth a visit. As many have noted, it is a Roman Catholic church designed with Javanese architecture and design sensibilities. It even features statues of Jesus and Mary as interpreted using...More

A Christian church complex offering the faithful a huge church, stations of the cross and a holy site. Well maintained and within a short drive from Jogja. Many people collect the famous restorative waters here and send home across Indonesia.

This is a roman catholic church building with a Javanese joglo house architectural style. The building was beautifully built with intricate decoration on the pillars, ceilings, and antique lamps. The altar, tabernacle, and all liturgical ornaments are designed in harmony with the traditional Javanese culture....More

The church ccupies a vast and well maintained space. No wall, the main structure is of a typical Javanese hall, and so is the altar and furniture. The harmonious cultural blend is obvious in its 'candi bentar' gate and a mini Hindu-shrine for the congregations'...More
