Church of St. John the Baptist #81

The church of John the Baptist is located in the village of Kidiosh, which was built in the XIV century on the basis of a chapel of the XIII century. In the Middle Ages, the temple served not only for prayer but also for defense purposes: it was surrounded by a fence and protected by a moat. And in the legends that the locals pass on from generation to generation, it is said that this is where King Solomon's monastery was located. Not only the biblical hero, but the son of King Andrew and the daughter of Yaroslav the Wise Anastasia. Here, in the hermitage, Solomon pleaded for sins - blood shed in internecine battles.
