Bodin Church

Bodin Church, which is a medieval stone church dating from around 1240, has undergone several modifications over the years. As part of an extensive reconstruction in 1894, the church was given, among other things, a new tower on the west side and a Swiss-style exterior decoration. When the church was renovated in 1962-64, these new additions were removed and the church was restored in the style of the 18th century. The tower was demolished and the church was given an onion dome on the ridge. A new porch was built, and the interior, ceiling and gallery were renovated.
