About the Church
Lom stavkyrkje is an impressive church with a rich history. Built in the mid-12th century, it was used by both the local population and travelers, and was an important hub between east and west. The church is built in stave construction and has a raised central room that is supported by a row of internal posts (columns). The carved dragon heads on the roof are characteristic of the church from the beginning, and the top dragon head on the east side of the church and the ridge crest over the choir are replicas, made in 1964, of the original decorations from the Middle Ages.
