A Javanese style Catholic church in a Hindu temple setting. Remarkable eclectic mixture. Represent the Javanese cultural tolerance at its based. Sacred and quiet at midnight. Great for meditating and pilgrimage. Don't forget the spring water too.

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

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.
