It was an impromptu trip without knowing where I was heading. I ended up in the suburb of Sunggal (Jalan Sakura iii, Tanjung Selamat Medan), Graha Maria Annai Velangkanni. It is probably one the most bizarre churches I have ever visited in my life. My first guess would be a temple, instead of a church!

The uniqueness of this shrine lies in strong of contrasting colors being used from black, grey, white, red, green, blue to gold. The church has its own blessed spring water which can be found beside the church and visitors are allowed to collect it in a bottle. If you are keen to know more, they have free brochures providing all the historical information for your reading pleasure!
