Crkvu je podigao Teodor – Toša Apostolović 1786. godine, a građena je sa elementima baroknog stila. Od prve polovine 20.veka pa sve do kraja Drugog Svetskog rata, ovde je služila ruska crkva, jer je veliki broj ruskih izbeglica došlo u ove krajeve. U drugoj polovini 20. veka crkva je bila poprilično zapuštena, sve dok je nije obnovio jeromonah Filaret 1981. godine. Ispred same Crkve Svetog Arhanđela Mihaila i Gavrila nalazi se spomenik kao poklon Jugoslaviji od Jermenskog naroda, za pomoć koja im je pružena tokom zemljotresa 1988. godine.
