The leader of the first Serbian uprising, Karadjordje Petrovic, built his memorial , the Church of Our lady, in keeping with the traditions of medieval Serbian rulers. Construction started in 1811 and the building works were completed that year. The church is single-naved with the base in the shape of an inscribed cross. It has a pointed roof, covered with tiles, above which rises a narrow dome.
The spatial entities are clearly divided in the interior of the church: the square nartex is linked to the central area with the slight extension of the northern and southern choir. As in all Ortodox churches, the altar stands in the east, behind the iconostasis.
The Holy Trinity (God the Father, God the Son and a white dove as a symbol of the Holy Ghost) is depicted in the dome.
The church is built of stone, plastered and today whitewashed.
