“Nașterea Maicii Domnului” Old rite Church

The current church building was erected on the site of an old wooden chapel in 1853. The ancient rite Orthodox Christian Church has some common elements to the other Orthodox churches, and a number of peculiarities. In general, the shape of the Lipovan church resembles that of the Orthodox churches, with its semicircular altar, facing East direction. The individual element that appears in a Lipovan church is determined by the presence of the cross with eight ends (some also call it the eight corners cross).
