Karja church was built in the beginning of 14th century. The church has retained almost unchanged its initial shape. The church is one-naved and doesn't have bell tower. On top of the altar are extant paganish magic ceiling signs that were painted during construction.
In the design of the church You will mostly see elements of early and high Gothic that are combined with some roman lines. Interesting to know: Karja church is one of the richest of sculptures in the whole Northern Europe. The arcs of the church exceed the height of the walls two times. Karja church is the smallest church on Saaremaa.
