The temple was built with a mixture of gallstone and shale on the lime mortar. The first floor was built in the 13th century, and the second floor was built shortly after, in the 14th century. 

The entrance to the church is along the west side and the 13th-century frescoes are well preserved in the interior of the lower part of the church. The altar is one step above the floor and is separated by a wooden ornamental iconostasis. The second floor is accessible from the west side.

The facade of the church was not replastered, and unfortunately, some pieces are hardly legible today.
