The idea to build this church belongs to Professor Konstantin Papafeodoru, who was born in Arcadia.

And all because of that every day, he was seen of felts, roofing felts with assistants on the ruins, and each time he was looking for something. And the people, simply do not understand what he was looking for there. So far, over time, they saw that he builds the structure, which eventually turned out to be the church.

The place for construction, was chosen quite by accident, because according to some myths, this city was the origin of life. Even the Romans called this land «Ark of God».
