This church was unique under perspective of architechture thus it might become haven for photography enthusiast. Too bad there was no mass when I visited there. Try to come on both day and night, the difference was quite contrast.

This is the oldest church in Central Java, dating back to 1753. Built in the shape of a Greek cross, the interior of this imposing Dutch structure is dominated by an enormous Baroque organ and pulpit. Although the organ was never able to be restored, it stands as a quiet reminder of the church's past. Well worth a visit.

There is something about church grounds that often offer a sense of serenity. This is not exception. I love the way the building is preserved without too much of a modern touch. The grounds are well landscaped and it is comfortable for a walkabout and photos.
