Juuru Church

The church of Juuru dates back to the 13th century. The congregation of Juuru considers the year 1238 as the date of birth of its church and the foundation of the congregation, which is celebrated every year in September on St. Michael's Day. Originally a stone building without a tower, the present appearance of the church owes much to its last complete reconstruction in 1893-1895.
