Church of Saint Lazarus has stood for over 1,000 years through lootings, destruction, and fires, thanks to centuries of work and restoration. According to Orthodox beliefs, the church is the resting place of Lazarus of Bethany--a man raised from the dead by Jesus Christ--who was forced to escape from Judea and chose to hide in Cyprus, where he died 30 years later for the second time. See this 31.5 m (103 ft) wide and 14.5 m (48 ft) tall church with three domes, featuring three internal aisles with bulky double pillars. Observe the wood and golden 18th-century iconostasis, which was heavily damaged by fire in 1970.

One of the most beautiful orthodox churches you can visit in Cyprus. Rich in history and architecture. If you're lucky, you will visit when there is a baptism taking place and see what happens. I would recommend visiting in the evening too. Although the church itself is locked, the courtyard is available, and the lighting makes for some great pics.
The church is really beautiful. Perfectly made and decorated icons are absolutely worth seeing! In the central point there are relics and amazing crypt of Sankt Lazarus. The church and well cared-for surrounding provides a possibility to take a rest on benches or wall.
