Church of Saint Demetrius, village of Yabalkovovillage of Yabalkovo in Haskovo, Bulgaria
It was built in the remote 1842 during the Ottoman domination. The pretext for building it was that the village priest Kalin needed a new house. The big earthquake at Chirpan of 1928 destroyed the church. It was restored in 1930 with resources from the Deposé Fund (a state fund covering the damages caused by the earthquake) and donations from the whole village. In 1950 it was painted by iconographer Petar Dzhamdzhiev from Plovdiv.
The building of the church is massive, made of bricks, with a gable roof, and an open-air arcade on the west and south sides. The tower of the belfry is built in the northwest corner and is accessed from the patio on the west.
There is also a holy spring near the church.
