Temple of Solomon, Sao Paulo

4.4
The Temple of Solomon (Portuguese: Templo de Salomão, IPA: [ˈtẽplu dʒi saloˈmɐ̃w̃]), is a replica of the Temple of Solomon built by the Universal Church of the Kingdom of God (UCKG) in São Paulo.

According to Brazilian press reports, the new temple is an "exact replica" of the ancient Temple of Solomon in Jerusalem. According to the church's leader, "The outside is exactly the same as that which was built in Jerusalem", but with increased dimensions.

Bishop Edir Macedo, the founder and leader of the neo-pentecostal church, at the time of construction explained that "We are preparing ourselves to build the temple, in the same mold as Solomon's. Solomon's Temple … used tonnes of gold, pure gold … We are not going to build a temple of gold, but we will spend tonnes of money, without a shadow of doubt." Bishop Macedo has said that the temple is twice the height of Rio de Janeiro's Catholic-sponsored Christ the Redeemer statue. Inside the temple there is a replica of the Ark of the Covenant constructed according to "biblical orientations".

  • This is a heresy! Do not be deceived by this fake church. The true church talks about Jesus Christ as the only way to God. He's the SAVIOR. Only by God's grace through the faith in HIS SON.
  • Nice place for meditation and talk with God.
