Paistu Virgin Mary Church

The first mentioning of Paistu Church takes place in relation to the Lithuanian foray in 1329. The church was probably built in the end of the 13th century. It is a stone building that originally had no tower. From the primary building the archaic eight-segment vaults have remained. On the vault there is a painting from 1903 imitating the starry sky. Interesting facts: -The tower was built during the period of 1862-1866 -The furnishing was completed mainly in 1852 during which the neogothic altar, chancel and organ balcony were installed -Altarpiece Kolgata is by Johann Karl Ludwig Maddaus (1952), the organ by master August Terkmann (1913)
