“Beautifull”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

This was our first stop. It came as quite a surprise as we were not sure what to expect. Magnificently carved, both structurally and art. Very serene.

“Massive church”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

This was impressive with it's size having no need for supports and no stairs to climb. Also no chair or pews to sit on, Serbian style. We were able to take photos. A lot of work had been put into the trees outside which we found unusual but equally impressive. Easy to find not far from the main street, definitely worth visiting.

“Better Churches in Coober Pedy”
Reviewed 27 June 2014 via mobile

I think I was turned off by the $5.00 "donation". It was a forced donation as there was a sign at the door saying you were being photographed before you entered. I always give a donation at Churches but I don't like being forced to. That said the Church was nice but so are the other Churches in Coober Pedy where no entrance fee is charged.

“This is an amazing underground church”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

This is definitely a must see on your to do list. It is a massive underground structure. It is obvious even before entering inside that a lot of work has gone into the excavation. It is a $5 donation but once inside you walk in awe admiring the passion and dedication, and the hard work. The buildings at Coober Pedy are not like your standard upright concrete/steel/glass city and town buildings; the dug outs require heavy machinery and careful design, then lots of hands-on digging and carving. Pay $2 to light a candle and leave with peace and utmost admiration for the hard working, dedicated parish people. There is also a community hall next door that I wanted to visit but it was locked on the day.
