There are six steps up from the nave to the altar, and there is an ambon on each side of them entered from the altar side.
The burghers of ambon show more of the Dutch element in their composition.
It was sometimes expressed without the aspirate, αμβη: hence the place of the oracle was styled ambon, αμβων.
Internally there is a rather remarkable pulpit or ambon on the north side of the nave.
The organ is on the north side in the bay east of the gallery, and is reached through the ambon on the Gospel side.
The woods of ambon teem with the abundant bird-life peculiar to the Moluccas.
