The unique church of Agios Kalandionas is located in the community of Arodes in the area of Akamas in Paphos.

The church is the only one in the world dedicated to the particular saint, while its other specificity is that it has two famous shrines in its courtyard. These are connected with the well-known story of Agios Agapitikos and Agios Misitikos. Crowds of believers rushed in order to receive holly water from the specific saint as it is considered to be miraculous for skin disorders.

Agios Kalandionas is celebrated on the 26th of April and religious events are organised every year in the community. According to the locals, the church operated twice a year while the temple is visited quite often by locals and tourists.
