Description
Kumla church was built during the 13th century with a nave and a detached bell-tower. In the middle of the 15th century the nave got two vaults. According to a note from a visitation of the bishop in 1630 the church was painted by Albertus Pictor in 1482. The tower of the church was constructed in 1758-1760. The paintings were renovated 1880 and 1939.
