Jakarta Cathedral
The Long History of Jakarta Cathedral Church

Cathedral Church is one of the cultural heritage buildings in Jakarta. Before it was inaugurated as a cultural heritage building, the Cathedral Church has a long history in its construction. The construction of the Cathedral Church began when Pope Pius VII appointed Father Nelissen as an apostic prefect of the Dutch East Indies in 1807. It was then that the mission and development of the Catholic church in the archipelago began, including in Jakarta.

In 1808, Father Nelissen together with Father Prinsen arrived in Batavia via the Fish Market Harbor. Then they met with Doctor FCH Assmus to discuss the establishment of the Catholic church in Batavia. In the same year, Father Nelissen got a loan of a bamboo house located in the southwest corner of Buffelvelt (now a religious department building) to be used as a church, and to use an officer's residence as a pastoral home. All these buildings were loaned from the government.

A year later, Catholics received a block of land located northwest of Banteng Square near the floodgates in lieu of a bamboo house. However, due to lack of funds, the construction of the church that had been launched was nevertheless carried out. The church also begged the Batavian government to provide a small building located on the Kenanga street in the Senen area to become a Catholic church. The building belongs to the Governor who has been built since 1770 by Cornelis Casteleijn under the supervision of Gurbernur Van Der Parra.

The Gubernemen building, which has an area of ​​around 8x23 square meters, also became a church for Malay and Dutch-speaking Protestants in Batavia. After renovations in various parts, the building was later turned into a Catholic church and can accommodate up to 200 congregations. Father Nelissen himself later blessed the church building, with Saint Ludovikus as its protector.

The establishment of the catholic church did not last long, in 1826 there was a great fire that burned many buildings in the Senen area. Pastoral buildings also became victims, but the church buildings did not come on fire despite damage in some parts. After the fire, the damaged church building was not renovated, considering that the land was not the church's land.

After this heartbreaking tragedy, Catholics finally found a new place to become a church. The place is the official residence of the generals who have been vacant. On behalf of Commissioner General Du Bus de Gisignies, Catholics were given buildings and land with an area of ​​34x15 square meters with several agreements. The contents of the agreement or other, the church was given the building along with the land by paying 20 thousand guilders. Then the church is entitled to get 10,000 guilders to repair the church. In addition, the church was also given a loan of eight guilders, which had to be repaid within a year.

The trials did not stop there. In 1890 the Cathedral Church building collapsed, the incident occurred three days after the church celebrated Easter. One year after that, the church building was renovated in two stages, and the construction was completed within 10 years after construction had been hampered. Now, the church building which is located on Jalan Cathedrals, Pasar Baru Sawah Besar, Central Jakarta, has been upgraded since 1993 to become a cultural heritage protected by the government.
In general, the building of the Cathedral Church is European in neo gothic style. Built by an architect named Ir MJ Hulswit, the Cathedral Church building is equipped with high doors and many windows. The windows are decorated with paintings that explain the events of the cross that have been experienced by Jesus Christ. Directly below the painting, on the right and left sides of the church are booths which are used as a place for confession. While at the front there is a sacred altar given by Commissioner General Du Bus de Gisignies. Despite being old, the altar table is still used as the main altar in various mass.

The Cathedral Church is one of Indonesia's cultural heritages that needs to be preserved and preserved. Inside are libraries and museums that explain the history of the spread of Catholicism in the land of Jakarta. In addition, the location of the Cathedral Church which is opposite the Istiqlal Mosque indicates that long ago Indonesian people have lived in a very high sense of tolerance and togetherness.

Istiqlal Mosque
Istiqlal Mosque, Symbol of Indonesian Independence

In 1953, precisely after independence, Islamic leaders gathered to spark the idea of ​​establishing a mosque. At that time, Islamic figures such as Wahid Hasyim, Agus Salim, Anwar Tjokroaminoto, and various other elements of society gathered with the main goal of establishing a mosque as a symbol of Indonesia's independence. A year later, on December 7, 1954, a foundation was formed which functioned as a committee to establish a mosque. Previously, the name istiqlal was agreed as the name of the mosque, which in Arabic means independence.

The Istiqlal Mosque Foundation then held a contest to get an ideal mosque design that could represent Indonesian independence. The contest which was held in 1955 gathered 30 participants, but only 27 participants included a picture. After being selected again, 22 eligible participants were gathered. From these 22 participants, 5 of the best were chosen. Finally the choice fell into the architect of a bloody Batak named Frederich Silaban. Interestingly, Frederich Silaban is actually a Christian.

The construction of the Istiqlal mosque took up to 17 years. The construction of this mosque was counted since 1961 during the Sukarno government and was completed in 1978 during the Soeharto era. In general, the Istiqlal Mosque stands on an area of ​​9.5 hectares. The area includes the mosque building, garden, parking lot, and fountain pond. The mosque building itself consists of several parts, including the main building, the preliminary building, giant terrace, tower, and the ground floor.

The main floor of the Istiqlal Mosque can accommodate up to 16,000 worshipers. Meanwhile, on the right, left, and back sides there is a 5-storey floor that can accommodate pilgrims up to 61,000 people. On the main floor of the mosque there are 12 pillars, the number represents the date of birth of the prophet Muhammad SAW which is 12 Rabi'ul Awwal. The pillars support the main dome of the mosque which is 45 meters in diameter as a reminder of the independence of Indonesia. On its side was written a chair verse and a letter from Al-Ikhlas.

The front of the main floor of the mosque is decorated with marble and calligraphy. While the left and right there are lafadz Allah and Muhammad. In another room, to be exact in the middle, there is a two-sentence calligraphy of the shahada, just below it is the mihrab and pulpit which are commonly used during Friday prayers or Eid prayers.

Sunda Kelapa Harbour
Sunda Kelapa, better known as Pasar Ikan (meaning fish market) is located at the mouth of the Ciliwung River. The fish catch of the day was auctioned in the early morning at the old fish market. The street leading to it was lined with shops selling all sorts of shells, dehydrated turtles, lobsters and mostly everything the seafarer might need. This 500-year-old harbor area was a vital link to markets of the outside world for the 15th century kingdom of Pajajaran. It was formerly the harbor town of Sunda Kelapa where the Portuguese traded with the Hindu Kingdom of Pajajaran in the early 16th century. Since than this port has belonged to the portuguese and Dutch.

Dutch domination of Jakarta and the rest of Indonesia began from this area, whereas the remnants of Kasteel Batavia, an old fort and trading post of the Dutch East Indies Company can still be seen now. Sunda Kelapa is at present a fisherman's wharf and an inter island port. Tall-misted Bugis schooners from South Sulawesi anchoring there offer a picturesque scene. They belong to one of the last-fleets of sailboats in the world and still ply the seas between the islands, as they did centuries ago, carrying merchandise.

Tough little remains of bustling old Sunda Kelapa except the name, the harbor is still one of the most important calls for sailing vessels from all over Indonesia. The magnificent and brightly painted Makassar schooner called Pinisi is still an important means of transporting goods to and from the outer islands. This is one of the finest sights in Jakarta.

Wander around the old Sunda Kelapa port, watching gangs of sinew-stretched coolies smoking pungent clove-laced cigarettes unload cargos of timber, coal and spices from stunning wooden schooners. Hire a dugout canoe and paddlers and enjoy the waterside scenery. The boats also go to the nearby old fish market, which can be reached easily by foot from the port and is free to enter. Work starts here at 3am and it's essential to arrive by 6am to see the best of the action.
