Gereja Ayam – The Colossal “Chicken Church” In The Midst Of The Indonesian Jungle

Gereja Ayam – The Colossal “Chicken Church” In The Midst Of The Indonesian Jungle

There are two kinds of weird stuff on this planet, artistic weird and plain weird. It doesn’t take much to guess that this giant church shaped like a chicken in the middle of a jungle is, well, just plain weird.  Maybe, just maybe, if this building was a chicken farm or some crazy experimental structure, it would make some sense, but none the less we are looking at a chicken.

If this isn`t strange enough, than how about the fact that this building wasn`t built to be neither church nor chicken. Confused? Let`s explain…

It all started when the 67-year-old Daniel Alamsjah had a vision and felt inspired to build a prayer house in a form of a dove, yes a dive! So people thought (mostly because of his Christian faith) that he is building a church. One thing is for sure, this is the most bird-like building in the world!

The prayer house opened its doors somewhere in the 1990s to all people of all religions, including Christians, Muslims and Buddhist.  The services were held in the upper section while the ground floor was used as a rehabilitation center.
