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 stories.
Is one of the most unique church in Indonesia also one of the most romantic, akin to Sendangsono and Poh Sarang.

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 traditional Javanese and old Hindu-style design elements.

Lots of places to have a quiet reflection, and worth a visit even if you're not a religious pilgrim. I wish the bathrooms were a bit cleaner and not so wet, but other than that this place is very much an awesome place to visit. It really is a one-of-a-kind space, and it's free! Donations are, as usual, welcome and recommended.

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.

A place for devotion, meditation, and prayer to Christ the King is situated in the form of a Hindu-style temple (Candi). Inside the temple is a statue of Christ the King, artistically imagined in the form of a Javanese King costume.

A quiet and tranquil place for devoting your prayer in a spiritual journey, or simply a visit to enjoy this unique architectural feature.

Pilgrims from many distant places come to this Church, and there is a large open hall for resting, and shower rooms are available for pilgrims.
