The parish church in Märjamaa was founded in the 14th century, when it was also used for defensive purposes. In 1686 it was renovated, and in 1871 the church tower was raised to its present height. In 1941, during the Battle of Märjamaa, it was destroyed. Until 1959, repairs were made and its sacred functions restored.
The church was built as an orientated, simple, aisleless building with no chancel separated in the outer block. From the west side a tower was added.
