The monumental building of the three-nave church, dedicated to St. Panteleimon, is the masterpiece of the most well-known Macedonian constructor of the 19th century, Andrea Damjanov. Characteristic elements of its architecture are the three profiled apses with columns on the outside and the galleries, constructed on two levels and decorated with floral motifs, in the interior. The icons on the iconsostasis were painted by the well-known artists of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th centuries: Dimitar Andonov Papradishki, Georgi Zografski and other artists of local origin.
