Ekshärads church

Make a visit to a well preserved church from 1686-1688. Here you can find among other things a baptismal font from the 1200s.
Timbered, cruciform church with shingles builded 1686-1688. Among the inventories you can see the christening font from the 13th century, raredos and sacrament cabinet from the middle-ages. On the organ loft you can see a series of funny portaits of kings. In the church a textileroom with objects from the 13th century has been installed. The church has become famous for its beautiful forged crosses of which the most are symbolising the tree of life.
