Gereja Ayam is a huge bird shaped church in the forested area of Rhema Hill, Borobudur, Magelang on the island of Java, Central Java, Indonesia.
The building was planned to be in the shape of a dove but the completed structure looks more like a hen than a dove and it is popularly known as Chicken Church (Gereja Ayam).
The church was built by an Indonesian businessman, Daniel Alamsjah, who saw in his dream a dove on top of a hill and also heard in the dream, a voice telling him to build a prayer house on the hills. Work on the church was started in 1990, but due to financial crisis, it was stopped after about 10 years and building started to decay. However due to its peculiar shape its fame spread and soon it became tourist attraction. With the money collected from the tourists the structure has now been some what renovated. It has a huge hall, a viewing platform in the crest of the bird and a viewing terrace at the tail end.
