In some of the cells of the cathedral wing of St. Lazarus, which is preserved to the south of the temple, they function as a museum. The most important of the few surviving relics that were once in the possession of the temple are on display today at the Museum of St. Lazarus. These are church relics from the Church of St. Lazarus, portable icons, crosses, goldsmiths' works, vestments and functional fabrics, some archaeological items from the temple library and church utensils, some sculptures, wood carvings and some. Most are devotions previously offered by the faithful to Saint Lazaros, many of which come from various other temples in the city. Situated in the homonymous picturesque square in the center of the city, the church is one of the most remarkable examples of Byzantine architecture in Cyprus. The church was built above the tomb of Saint Lazaros, who came to Cyprus after the Resurrection of Jesus, was ordained Bishop of Kition by the Apostles Barnabas and Paul and lived in the city for 30 years.
