Very eye catching church whilst driving past and seeing an ancient relic sign board. Still don't know what is ancient about it, but I've read it could have been a temple. Nethertheless, the church has a unique ambience and features worth a quick visit.

I had hoped to get entry to the building, unfortunately nobody was around and it was locked. I did enjoy the exterior, as it's quite different. Disappointing that way, but not uncommon on our travels, either.

What a lovely find this was, we stopped and had a good look round. The church is a miss match of everything but well worth a trip/ detour
