GPIB Protestant Church

Credit: Salatiga.NL

The church is located at Taman Sari area, near Pancasila Monument right at the center of the town.

The church building as it is today. The main building looks to be relatively well preserved, unlike many historical buildings in Indonesia where they are simply run down or demolished, or "renovated" (or "dibangun" in local term), unfortunately often meaning bright wall paint and ceramic tiles.

Indonesians do not appreciate public space and general city aesthetics, as seen here the church is now surrounded within concrete jungle, even for a very small town by Indonesian standard.
