View on map

Just a bit north of the Riga-Pskov highway stands the Luhamaa Church, on the highest hill in Hindsa village. The church's most important holiday is Ascension Day. The people of Luhamaa belonged for a long time to the Pankjavitsa congregation, but since services were in Russian, and it was far, they built their own church. At the end of the 1920s, a local school and orchestra were founded here, and they began to collect money for building a new church. The effort was successful, and in 1932, the new church was finished. The congregation's cemetery is by the church.
