900 year old magical wooden church in Norway
900 Year Old Borgund Stavkirke Temple
There were about 1000 stave churches built along the old trade routes in Norway. More than 900 years old Temples were made by pine wood. The use of dark timbers, pointed gables and ornately carved dragonheads decorate these Christian places of worship. The 3-level tower resembles a pagoda, but with roof pine shingles. Norway pines are likewise used in the beam construction with the stave, edge-to-edge strips of wood, predominant. As with the Viking ships, woodcut animals create rich and impressive decoration. Such an amazing eco-friendly creation!
