Church devoted to Assumption of the Holy Mother

Church devoted to Assumption of the Holy Mother, the oldest church in this part of Serbia, is located in the village Josanica, 15 km away from  Sokobanja. It dates from the 11th century, it is built of stone, with impressive iconostasis, which is partially restored and preserved. The most striking icon is an icon of Jesus in his three aging periods as a boy, a man (at the time of suffering) and the third, the most interesting, as an old man. The priests have an interesting explanation for this unique presentation of the Christ by the painter.
