On each of the pillar, a picture of the Cross of Jesus Christ and the emblem of the Holy Church is embedded.
Solomon's Temple History
The church was founded by Dr. L.B. Sailo. He stated that, “In the year 1991, God had shown me Solomon's Temple in my dreams. I never thought of Solomon's temple ever before, nor had any dream of constructing it, but when I was clearly shown in 1991, as soon as I woke up, I wrote down the temple as I saw in my dream.” A piece of land was purchased in the eastern part, but due to the inaccessibility, lack of transportation facility and the inadequate size of the land acquired, the site was purposefully relocated. The location is on the western side, 10 km away from Aizawl, the capital of Mizoram state in India. The foundation stone was laid on 23 December 1996.
