The dining hall is located at Philipp Village at Solomon’s Temple and was opened as part of the church’s 12th anniversary.Pastor Egbert Baggot told Guyana Times that the intention was to create a “one of a kind” dining hall in the ancient county.“We did not just want the church to be one of a kind, but everything about the sanatory to be one of a kind, so, for the dining room we had stuff brought from the Middle East.”He said the objective was to have the hall built with as many as possible “scriptural products” and enriched with lots of gold.Noting that in biblical days Solomon’s Temple was enriched with a lot of gold, Pastor Baggot said it cost the church a whole lot but they wanted it to be one of a kind.“I know if you come to the Temple or if you come to the dining hall you can still that you are way off.”The tables are made of marble and even the washroom has gold. The paper towel holder has a golden finish and the toilet seats, while not made of gold, is gold in colour.The dining hall is also available for rental.last_img read more
