The Mysterious Case Of The ‘Chicken Church’ In Magelang

The question is – “Why?”

Some say it was a failed poultry farm, some say it was a cloister for monks, and some say it was an evangelical church… There are conflicting stories about the true origins of the Gereja Ayam.

In this story, WowShack dives into the mystery of the “Chicken Church.”

According to this blog post written in Bahasa Indonesia, the church was set up by an evangelical man known as ‘Daniel Alamsjah’.
