Saint Lazarus Church, Larnaka City

(4.8/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web)
Saint Lazarus Church has stood for over 1,000 years through lootings, destruction, and fires, thanks to centuries of work and restoration. According to Orthodox beliefs, the church is the resting place of Lazarus of Bethany--a man raised from the dead by Jesus Christ--who was forced to escape from Judea and chose to hide in Cyprus, where he died 30 years later for the second time. See this 31.5 m (103 ft) wide and 14.5 m (48 ft) tall church with three domes, featuring three internal aisles with bulky double pillars. Observe the wood and golden 18th-century iconostasis, which was heavily damaged by fire in 1970. Our Larnaka City trip builder makes visiting Saint Lazarus Church and other Larnaka City attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • A beautiful example of Greek/Byzantine temple. The interior is really impressive and on the side, there is a small but very nice museum of Byzantine religious culture. I have no Christian background, ...  more »
  • Very beautiful temple, 3 days was in Larnaca and came every day, and the Sabbath was an evening liturgy, very impressed with the service, solemnly and at the same time very at home, just no words!
