The church of Kärdla was dedicated to John the Baptist and was constructed in 1863. It is the third church in Kärdla.
The barons of Emmaste, Suuremõisa and Putkaste were the initiators of the idea to build the church and gave the baron of Kärdla 2000 roubles for that purpose. The workers of the cloth factory made voluntary donations and a part of the money for the construction was taken from the workers wages. It is an architecturally harmonic, typical hall church with an “open” bell tower crowning the western facade (unique in Estonia). The architecture of the stylish and beautiful church in Kärdla is simple and ascetic. This architectural monument is one of the most distinguished working-class churches.

Church, which is similar to the community.

Beautiful and unique church, which is in renovation right now. Church is built in neogothic style. The church is built of limestone and is plastered and whitewashed inside and out.
