Near Temenia, there is the interesting Byzantine church of Sotiras Christos. The church is a single-aisled church, but with a large narthex at the front, which has the architectual style of a cruciform church with a dome. The church has blind arches which give it better support and more drawing space for the frescoes, which are from the sixteenth to seventeenth century. The church is outside the village, at the foot of the hill of the ancient city of Yrtakina, on a right hand turning from Temenia to Sougia. The trees that surround the church are visible from the main road.
