In the interior there are two characteristic arches which begin from the roof and end at the middle of the temple. The templo is wooden and carved and is characterised for its old type carving. The added icons complete the richness of the temple. There are two wooden psalm areas as well as a throne for the priest. The dedicated wooden icon of the Saints is located to the right of the iconostasis located on the wall. The church was renovated about 5 years ago with the help of the Holy Monastery of Kykkos and it can accommodate 200 Christians.

The church is celebrated on the 30th of October. According to tradition Agios Zinovios was a miracle doctor who cured many patients mentally and physically. Both saints fought for Christianity and were banished.
