I was walking through the street of Jakarta. It was a street named Catedral Street. As the name suggests, along this street stands a Christian cathedral. The Jakarta Cathedral was built in the Gothic style.
The cathedral was built in 1901. considering that the Dutch started to establish their rule over Indonesia in the 17th century, it's construction was late. That's because Jakarta Cathedral is a Roman Catholic church, the Dutch, which was a Protestant state, would not allow it to be built. They didn't want the power of the papacy to extend to the Dutch colony.
Across the street from the Jakarta Cathedral is the Istiklal Mosque. So this place is where a Muslim mosque and a Catholic church stand opposite each other. By the way, Protestant, Catholic, and Muslim, as long as they live, it is the same for everyone who becomes hungry. There were some food stalls serving snacks on Cathedral Street and next to the green stall, there was a propane gas cylinder.
Jakarta Cathedral is a Roman Catholic cathedral in Jakarta, Indonesia, which is also the seat of the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Jakarta, currently Archbishop Ignatius Suharyo Hardjoatmodjo. Its official name is Gereja Santa Perawan Maria Diangkat ke Surga. This current cathedral was consecrated in 1901 and built in the neo-gothic style, a common architectural style to build churches at that time. The Jakarta Cathedral is located in Central Jakarta near Merdeka Square and Merdeka Palace, right in front of the cathedral stands the Istiqlal Mosque.
