Medan is one of the most diverse cities in the country, i.e., where Muslims, Christians, Buddhists, Hindus, and Confucians have lived in harmony for hundreds of years. The exterior building design looks like a Hindu temple in India. The design is unique as no other churches look like it. The interior, however, is a church as usual.
