Quite far from town center, especially in a traffic jam city like Medan, we visited on the way to Berastagi. Church is unique from outside, free entrance.

Very unique Church. Is a Indian styled Church, although a bit off track but can be access by Car and worth a visit. The ambient is serene, do take a walk up to the main hall.

Quite easily accessible by car, and the architect is most unusual, while the ambience is sacred. A very quiet place, to lift up your cares and concerns to Him, through the intercession of His Mother. Felt blessed to have come to this uniquely beautiful church.

The Mass is available on Saturday morning and saturday evening, and I was told that there is no mass on Sunday as the church is open for public viewing as tourist attractions. Please contact Father James at the church.
