Church
“Jakarta Cathedral (Indonesian: Gereja Katedral Jakarta, Dutch: Kathedraal van Jakarta) 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.[1] Its official name is Gereja Santa Perawan Maria Diangkat ke Surga (from Dutch, De Kerk van Onze Lieve Vrouwe ten Hemelopneming, in English: The Church of Our Lady of Assumption). 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.”

Place of worship
“Istiqlal Mosque has the claim to fame of being the largest mosque in Southeast Asia and has a capacity of 120,000 worshippers at any one time. It is located near to the national monument of Monas so it makes sense to visit both at the same time. Some things to look out for here include the beautiful Islamic motifs such as stars used to decorate the mosque as well as the water features that are repeated inside. Non-Muslims are welcome to visit the mosque outside of prayer times providing that they dress modestly.”

“Established in 1932, Ragusa Italian Ice Cream is one of the oldest ice cream shops in Indonesia. Ragusa has two outlets located in Duta Merlin and Jl. Veteran, Central Jakarta. However, the latter has become an icon of the capital as it has been serving its loyal patrons since 1947, after being relocated from its original location at Gambir Market. Their spaghetti ice cream is the must-try one.”
