Agios Georgios Chapel

Agios Georgios Chapel

About the Chapel


It is situated in the Kamenes region, approximately four kilometres from the village centre, and is a memorial to the Holy Great saint George the Trophy Bearer. A modest chapel once stood in this location; however, it has been severely damaged by the elements and has also been abandoned. As a result, it remained in this condition for a number of years prior to the determination to restore and refurbish it. The temple was restored through collaboration, and it is now the crown treasure of the region. Annually, the inhabitants of Pachna congregate in this sanctuary on Epiphany Monday and the day our church celebrates the memory of Agios Georgios to offer prayers and expressions of gratitude to the preeminent saint.

About the Ruins


Additionally, there are chapel ruins in the “Pefkos” region of western Pano Pachna, which are likely those of Agios Georgios. During this period, the women adorned bushes and trees with handkerchiefs or other articles of apparel. North of the village, in the vicinity of Sklinikas, are the remnants of the church dedicated to Agios Georgios or the Apostle Luke, which was venerated on Bright Monday. An adjacent location to the north, along the Ha River, stands an abandoned church that is dedicated to Agios Theodoros. Efforts are being undertaken to restore this chapel. From the entire structure, only the north and south walls, in addition to the alcove of the Holy Step, have been preserved.

Agia Marina Chapel

Agia Marina Chapel (Agiasma)

About the Chapel


A splendid and impeccably maintained chapel is situated atop the village’s highest point. It is consecrated on July 17, the feast day of Agia Marina. Due to the villagers’ devotion to Agia Marina, an additional church was constructed within the community. As an expression of reverence for Agia Marina, the Agathangelos Giakoumis family constructed this church in close proximity to the remnants of an earlier structure and in close proximity to her Agiasma. On the mountainside to the northeast of the chapel is Agiasma. It was discovered following a vision of a village woman who was afflicted with a malady. The woman was cured shortly after its discovery, and shortly thereafter, Miltiadis Telemachou, the ecclesiastical commissioner at the time, assumed financial responsibility for the restoration of the Agiasmas as a tribute to Agia Marina.

Agios Epiphanios Chapel (Ruins)

About the Chapel


An additional diminutive sanctuary, which was devoted to Agios Epiphanios, was situated approximately four kilometres to the south of the village. This sanctuary, which originated in earlier centuries, was reduced to ruins following an earthquake that struck the region. Consequently, it remains in this condition until the moment for its reconstruction arrives, just as countless other chapels of Pachna did.

Agios Stephanos Chapel

About the Chapel


Undoubtedly, situated around two kilometres to the north of the village, the diminutive chapel of Agios Stefanos, which originated in the mid-15th century, stands as the preeminent ecclesiastical structure of the locality. It is not only one of the most significant religious structures in the area, but also one of the most intriguing architectural structures.

Apostolos Pavlos Church

Apostolos Pavlos Church

About the Church


The magnificent church of the village, which was constructed to the south of the church of Panagia tis Katholiki, is consecrated to the Apostolos Pavlos, whom the village and the Apostolos Petros commemorate on June 29. This 1973-built temple is remarkable not only for its grandeur but also for its location. It has a cupola and a three-aisled cruciform shape. The inscription on the north wall indicates that the church was formally consecrated by the Metropolitan of Paphos Chrysostomos on July 4, 1976. Temples of this magnitude are predominantly situated in urban areas and infrequently encountered in rural locales. This demonstrates the inhabitants’ devotion to the Church and Saints, in addition to the village’s expanding population.

Panagia Katholiki Church

Panagia Katholiki Church

About the Church


A smaller church bearing the name Panagia once stood in the vicinity of the present-day site of the ancient church of Panagia Katholiki. Based on the accounts of ancient travellers, two arches of this temple were preserved in the vicinity of its western entrance. As a consequence of its limited dimensions, expansion became imperative to accommodate the religious requirements of the local populace. On the same spot, the New Church of Panagia Katholiki was erected in 1849, the result of numerous community residents’ efforts and the benevolent contribution of the sanctified Ioannis Menzis. This church is also the custodian of the 16th century icon of the Virgin Mary, which is currently on display in the church of Apostolos Pavlos and is partially deteriorated.

12 Apostolon Church

12 Apostolon Chapel

About the Chapel


Despite its diminutive size, this temple is architecturally significant. The decision to erect an additional temple in remembrance of the Twelve Apostles was motivated by the affection of the people of Pachna for them. Following a concerted endeavour, the reconstruction of this temple commenced. The tasks were accomplished expeditiously, and the temple was adorned with every ecclesiastical implement. It appears that icons were originally used to decorate the walls of this temple, despite the absence of any surviving wall frescoes at present.

Agios Georgios Church

About the Church


The parochial church of the village, which is devoted to Saint George, the Great Martyr and Trophy Bearer, is situated on Trevlakas hill. A small monastery was erected in the vicinity of the present church, which is of 18th century origin, but it was demolished throughout the Turkish rule. The miraculous icon of Agios Georgios, which was relocated from the homonymous sanctuary in the village, is housed in this church. Saint George shielded the community from both the pestilence epidemic that befell Cyprus and the Turkish occupation of the area. Crowds of believers gathered to his honour on the day our church honoured the saint, not only from Pachna but also from other regions of Cyprus, to express their gratitude or plead for his assistance.
