If you’ve ever passed through the insane maelstrom that is Jatinegara, you’ll probably have noticed a fine old church at the major hairpin intersection.
It was built in 1911-1916 by the Dutch and originally known as Gereja Bethel/De Betelkerk:
And as it looks today, nearly 100 years later.
From an architectural aspect, the church makes use of gables (triangle wall sections where they meet the roof) and has a pleasant geometric design with nine separate sections. The inner sections of the church form a symmetrical cross.
Thankfully, the building is listed as a Class A building, and should therefore not be torn down anytime soon - either because of vocal protests from religious extremists or because property developers want to turn it into another bloody mall!
