Candles near the entrance of the church. Had to get back to the bus, my 15 minutes was up.


There is evidence that the church excited in 1731. The temple of that time was made of sticks, mud and straw. The construction of the present church began around 1765. The particular beauty of this temple makes its iconostasis with its carving of The Virgin Mary's Throne, the archpriest's throne and church furniture of the rare beauty, done by the domestic wood-carvers.
