Saha Chapel used to be one of the oldest ecclesiastical centres built on the site of an ancient sacred place of Estonians. According to a folk story it is even 50 years older than the City of Tallinn and it was established by bishop Fulco.
The exact time of establishment of the chapel is not known, but the original wooden church was burnt down during an uprising in 1223. The present-day chapel was probably built at the same time as the Pirita Convent, i.e. in the second quarter of the 15th century.
Interesting to know: - Saha Chapel is like a minor version of Pirita Convent. The latter – the largest and the most gorgeous convent in Old Livonia lies mainly in ruins.
