Zelemeri Church Ruins Hajduboszormeny

The ruins of the Zelemeri Gothic Church (Zeleméri Csonkatorony) are the last remnants of Zelemer, a village first mentioned in the papal tithes of 1332, and destroyed during the Middle Ages.

Standing atop a Kurgan (kunhalom), the church’s 4.5 x 4.8 m steeple may have also served as a watchtower. Built around 1310, the church was 26 m long, and 6.6 m wide at the nave, having a semi-octagonal shape and north vestry. The village was erased during the Crimean Tartar invasion of 1594, and a few decades afterwards, the whole area became depopulated. The ruins we see today stand as a memorial to Zelemer village.
