Geocache Description:


Tämä laajalti tunnettu "KOMIAKIRKKO" edustaa uusgoottilaista rakennustyyliä ja on rakennettu vuosina 1847-1852. Rakentamisajasta kertoo pääoven yläpuolelle kiveen hakattu lause: "Keisari Nikolai I hallituksen aikana rakennettiin tämä Herran Huone Wuonna 1850". Kirkon on suunnitellut valtionarkkitehti E. Lohrman ja rakentamisen valvoi tunnettu kirkonrakentajansuvun edustaja Jaakko Kuorikoski. Kirkko vihittiin käyttöön 20.5.1852. Kristuksen kirkastumista kuvaava alttaritaulu on professori Adolf von Beckerin maalaama vuodelta 1888.

Kirkon koko pituus on 59 metriä, leveys 26 metriä ja pääristi kohoaa 52 metrin korkeuteen. Kirkossa on istumatilaa 2500 hengelle.



This stately church of Ylistaro was built in the late gothic style. Construction was started in 1847 and finished 1852. State architect E. Lohrman made the plan for the church, and Jaakko Kuorikoski supervised the construction. The altarpiece painted by professor Adolf von Becker in 1888 represents the transfiguration.

The whole length of the church is 59 metres, the width 26 metres, and the main tower is 52 metres high. The church seats 2500 people.
