"The world's largest active salt mine is located in Zipaquira, Colombia. Contained as part of the mine, more than 800 feet deep into the mountainside is the unique 'Salt Cathedral.' A remarkable place of worship . . . . magnificent, yet so earthbound. The three main corridors have ceilings arching 73 feet high supported by columns of solid salt. It took about six years to excavate and seats up to 5000 people. It must give a whole new meaning to the statement of Jesus that 'you are the salt of the earth'" (Matthew :13)." -- As mentioned by Robert Strand, Fascinating Facts about Jesus (Green Forest, AR: New Leaf Press, 2000), #14.
