Türi – St Martin’s Church


   The church of St. Martin in Türi was built in the 13th century. In 1741, the first wooden tower was added. Stone tower was built in 1865-1867.


   The church was built as a typical example of an early Gothic temple from Livonia region, in the form of a three-aisle structure of a hall system, erected on a rectangular plan, with a square chancel on the eastern side. Both parts were covered with separate gable roofs. The side walls of the nave and the chancel were pierced with narrow, long, pointed-arched windows, and the eastern gable was decorated with blendes and blind traceries. Two ogival Gothic portals led to the interior: one from the west and one from the south.
