Solomon's Temple in Aizawl, Mizoram is constructed by a non-denominational church, known in Mizo language as Kohhran Thianghlim which is rendered 'The Holy Church' in English. The church was founded by Dr. L.B. Sailo in 1984 and the members are known as 'the elects.' Their mission is to proclaim and disseminate the word of God throughout the world, particularly to the Mizo people through written and spoken means of communication, and they are constructing Solomon's Temple as a symbol of their love of Jesus Christ.
Dr. L.B. Sailo, the founder of the Holy Church said that he was enjoined by God in 1991 to build Solomon’s Temple in Mizoram, India. 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 the 25th December 1996.
Area The Temple area accommodates 2,000 people within the main hall and ten thousand people within its courtyard. It is a square site 180 ft. on each side. The interior of the Temple building is also square, 120 ft on each side. A verandah 30 ft. wide is attached to the exterior of the main hall on all four sides. This provides a shelter for people with its sizable seating capacity and is called ‘The porch of Solomon’s Temple’.

  • Wonderful Place. Its God's dwelling place
  • Its a really beautiful place. Its decorated with so many extravagant things and seems like a new world altogether. Nice place to get some photography done and bring your kids too. The temple is huge and really mesmerizing. It's really difficult to explain the beauty in words, especially during the festive season when there is so much decoration. If you are in Aizawl it should be in your visit list.
