Church Made of Bones

by on 05/16/2011

In the city of Sedelik of the Czech Republic, there is an interesting church.This church is not made of wood, nor it is made of cement, nor it is made of metal, but instead it ismade of parts of Muslims. In the year of 1218, the Pope of that time, to show pride, ordered the construction of a church bringing the bones of Muslims killed for its construction.

The order was sent to the country by bringing the bones of 40,000 Muslims. Some like Mr Ikram Khan however say that these are not Muslim bones but are actually bones of people who died in a plague. They wanted burial at this “holy” site and thus this monument.
