Deep in the Indonesian jungle, a giant chicken roosts atop a hill. But this huge bird doesn’t peck at the ground or lay eggs. The enormous chicken-shaped building was hatched by a Jakarta man who claims God sent him a message in a dream, telling him to build a prayer house shaped like a bird. Daniel Alamsjan did what any devout Christian would do and set out to build a giant church-like building that resembles a chicken.
