   Kedares - The Church of St. John the Forerunner


On the western side of the village stands the magnificent church of St. John the Forerunner, the patron saint of the village. It was built in 1883.  The church is not large but very beautiful and atmospheric.

The unique templon (iconostasis) of the church. It has two sets of doors: the Beautiful Gates or Holy Doors in the centre, and the South Door.
The woodcarving of the unique templon (iconostasis) of the church was done in 1884.

In the Church stand out two icons of Christ painted in 1628 and 1708, one icon of St. Anargiroi painted in 1724 and last but not least the two icons painted by Ioannis Kornaros, the icons of St. John and St. Spiridonas, painted in 1791. The famous Cretan painter arrived in Cyprus around 1787 where he painted a number of icons.
