In 1894 and 1897, a plot of land was transferred from the Tohisoo and Kohila manors to build a church. The church was designed by architect Vladimir Lunski. The cornerstone was laid in July 1899. The church was consecrated on January 28, 1901. In 1950 the church was closed. During the Soviet era, the church building was used as a warehouse. In 1993 the congregation was reopened. The church has a new iconostasis. Author E. Haabsaar

The Kohila Church Tower Gallery is one of the most interesting galleries, as the exhibition spaces are designed to hang pictures of the original way and the exhibitions often change. The gallery curator is also a complete icon wall section of icons ready to be painted. Art historians still argue whether icon art is art, but curator defines icons as a religious painting, not as a picture culture.

Redipuglia World War I Memorial

Redipuglia is the largest Italian Military Sacrarium. It rises up on the western front of the Monte Sei Busi, which, in the First World War was bitterly fought after because, although it was not very high, from its summit it allowed an ample range of access from the West to the first steps of the Karstic table area.

The monumental staircase on which the remains of one hundred thousand fallen soldiers are lined up and which has at its base the monolith of the Duke of Aosta, who was the commanding officer of the third Brigade, and gives an image of a military grouping in the field of a Great Unity with its Commanding Officer at the front. The mortal remains of 100,187 fallen soldiers lie here, 39,857 of them identified and 60,330 unknown.
