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.

A small but rather remarkable church in the centre of Larnaka, associated with the Lazarus raised by Jesus from the dead. Steps lead down to the tomb itself, and an ornate silver reliquary is in a prominent position in the centre of the church displaying the bones, of the man itself. The church is architecturally beautiful and the interior ornate, however it excludes an aura of calm simplicity and is both a place of pilgrimage for the religious minded, or merely a quiet spot to escape the heat of the day for the simply curious.
A really good church. Everything was like brand new. It was really really beautiful and everything was covered in gold. The history of the church was really interesting! Definitely visiting again!
