This monumental church by construction, artistically worked through architecture, in the form of a cross with three towers, expresses the Byzantine style combined with Romanian elements.

The plan of the construction that was drawn up by the architect of the Holy Bishopric of R?mnic, I. Atanasescu, and corrected by the architect of the Holy Patriarchate, D. Berechet, was implemented in 1936. The church dedicated to "St. Gheorghe", or "The New Church", is built of brick, stone and reinforced concrete, which give it durability and strength, built on a plot of land where there has never been a church.

The foundation stone was laid in 1936 and by 1938 the construction reached the belt above the windows, which remained unexecuted. The works were interrupted and continued only in 1942. For 10 years, that is, until 1952, the construction was finished, being rendered in red and covered with tin.

Since 1953, the interior and exterior plastering works have continued, it has been painted and it has been endowed with the necessary furniture, ready for crawling. The church was consecrated on October 5, 1958.

At the entrance to the church, on the right side, there are the portraits of the spouses Gheorghe and Domnica Gherghinescu, as those who contributed substantial sums for the completion of the works at the church.

The fresco painting, in the form of the Neo-Byzantine style, was executed by the painter Emil Ivanescu from Curtea de Arges, between 1957-1958.
