Medan's new Catholic temple Graha Maria
Since 2005, a catholic temple, in Indo-Mogul style, devoted to Graha Maria Annai Velangkanni (Our Lady of Good Health), is built in Medan, Indonesia. This particular Saint knows its origin with an apparition in the 17th century in India. The temple is an imposing building, of two storeys and a small tower of seven storeys in Indonesian style, that already attracts attention from the main road (it is situated in the small road Jl. Sakura III besides Jl. Simatupang). It is important pilgrimage site in Asia.
