The wodden church of the old Barsana Monastery shouldn't be confused with the new wooden church belonging to the today's monastery. The old church was built in 1711 and is on the World Heritage UNESCO list together with other seven churches from the area. It was built by a priest and his sons, together with the people of the village. The inside paintings are currently being restored.
