Kaersuando Church

The old church was built in 1816. 50 years later, during the Easter , the church cracked along the roof ridge and almost fell in two parts. That churchbuilding was replaced in 1905 with this present church, which was thoroughly restored in 1953/54. The church has an altar sculpture made by Bror Hjort and it represents the famous priest Lars Levi Laestadius, his disciple Johan Raattamaa and the saami girl Maria.
