Designed by Anders Fredrik Granstedt and built between 1844 and 1847, the church has a length of 45 metres , a width of 42 m , a height of 37 m and a seating capacity of more than 3,000. Altogether, there can be 5,000 people at a time in the church.
It has been rumoured that the size of the church was the result of a miscalculation when it was built . Further studies, however, have shown that the church was actually intended to be as big as it is, so it could easily accommodate a half of the area's population at the same time.
