All Saints Temple #188

In the village, a fortified stone Reformed temple (XIV century) was preserved. At first it was a Catholic church. According to the first mention of Shalanok in the papal tax register for 1332, the village church was dedicated to All Saints. In the 1540s, the congregation of the church became a Protestant religious community. During the religious wars the temple survived the fires in the XVI and XVIII centuries. The bell tower was wooden until the 18th century. After the rebuilding of 1821, the temple lost some features of Gothic architecture. In 1873, an extension from the main facade appeared. Babinets was completed in 1936.
