Lom Stavkirke (Stave Church)
Lom - Oppland

Lom Stavkirke is a triple nave stave church that uses free standing inner columns to support a raised section in the ceiling of the main nave. This
type of church is amongst the oldest Stave Churches. The church was first situated in a sub valley to the valley Gudbrandsdal in Oppland County,
some 60 kilometers west of Otta.

The church dates to approximately 1150-1200 AD, but was rebuilt into cruciform during the 1600's. The chancel was decorated in 1608, and the
nave was enlarged towards west in 1634. The cross section was added in 1663, but this was made in stave like frame work. A complete
restoration took also place in 1933, and a smaller one in 1973. This stave church is actually one of just a very few stave churches of which the
original medieval crest with a dragon head still survives.
