Chapel of Prophet Ilias

About the chapel

In 1990, when the irrigation department was established in the Pefkoto region, Father Sokratis Papadopoulos, a vicar in the Episcopio from Odou, donated a portion of his land for the construction of the present Prophet Ilias church.

Together with Fr. Andreas Sofroniou (pastor of Odou) and Kostas Chimonas (former community leader of Odou), and with the blessings of the then-Metropolitan of Kitios Chrysostomos, construction of the small chapel began in 1997 with contributions from both the landowners of the area and many other donors. The undertaking was completed in 2006.

The temple is dedicated to the Prophet Ilias, who is revered as a guardian of the weather. The temple’s rhythm is a regal wooden roof. The chapel is situated at an elevation of 1200 metres in a prominent location in the centre of the Odou – Machairas road.

In addition, it is part of the “Girilithkia” nature pathway.
