This church, built in 1817, is known by the local inhabitants as the old chirch. It is the church bells that announced the beginning of the April uprising. The church contains many precious works of art including the Iconostasis (1821) and the other icons made by Renaissance painters (like Zahari Zograf) during the period of 1837 to 1838. In the yard of the church is located the mortuary monument of Dimcho Debelianov, built in 1934 by the sculptor prof. Ivan Lazarov. You can find here also the tomb of Hadzhi Nencho Palaveev - the important grantor of funds for the construction of the local culture house and other cultural buildings.
