The church bears 2 irregular domes, which are a result of the destruction and alterations they have endured over the years. Inside the building, the depth created by the cylindrical domes create a grand atmosphere, despite the relatively small size of the temple. In 1995, the Department of Antiquities performed a partial restoration of the damaged southern wall after locating its initial foundations. The temple was once entirely frescoed. Today, only a few frescoes remain in recognizable condition, some of which are the oldest of their kind that still survive in Cyprus. The temple’s frescoes date back to the late 14th century.
