Agios Konstantinos and Agia Eleni Chapel - Kouklia

The chapel of Agios Konstantinos and Agia Eleni is located on a mountainside, northeast and at a distance of 2-3 kilometres outside Kouklia village. It is said that it was the monastery of Agios Konstantinos and Agia Eleni and that monks used to live in the monastery.

During the Turkish Occupation it was destroyed inside and outside and was even used as a barn for animals. Today the only part which is saved is the central. Christians did not have any access to it then, and about 40 years ago the department of antiquities restored it to the temple which it is today.

The roof is concrete, white and semicircle. On its interior the stone can be seen but it is very poor. The hagiographies cannot be seen well and are very worn out, even though there are many attempts for their restoration.
