This is the actual temple. Preperations for the begining of works started in 1894, but it was only in 1926 when the architects agreed on how it's going to look like. The works on the temple were stopped on April 6th 1941, when the when Belgrade was bombed by Germany.

In 1984. a new permition was gained and works on the temple could be continued. That was a great moment for all Serbs.

The temple is still not finished and in one of the following tips you will get to see it the enterior which is being done.

Statue in front of which I amon this main picture in the tip is Karadjordje, as Turks used to call him ("The Black" Djordje). He had led the first Serbian uprising in 1804. which was the beggining of the end for Turkish Ottoman Empire.
