A wooden church was built here in 1766. It had no steeple and it was covered in wood planks. It was repaired a few times and, given the 1906 Exhibition which was organized in nearby Carol Park, it was replaced with a brick church, built by King Carol I and Queen Elisabeta. In 1906 the church was endowed with a large, stone carved cross dating from 1677. The church has exquisite exterior frescoes which were restored in 1992-1995. The church is surrounded by a graveyard.
