Congregational church was built in 1837-1840 by order of Knez Miloš Obrenović, according to the design and plans of A. F. Kverfeld, a builder from Pančevo. It is built in style of classicism with late baroque elements. The church is dedicated to St. Michael the Archangel. The interior is richly decorated. The gold-plated carved iconostasis was made by the sculptor Dimitrije Petrović, while the icons on the iconostasis, thrones, choirs and pulpits, as well as those on the walls and arches were painted by Dimitrije Avramović, one of the most distinguished Serbian painters of the XIX century. The special value of the church is its treasury with the relics of the Serbian saints Czar Uroš and Despot Steva Štiljanović, as well as of the heads of the Church and Serbian rulers of the Obrenović dynasty (Miloš, Mihailo and Milan). Two famous men of the Serbian culture stand in front of the main portal: Dositej Obradović and Vuk Stefanović Karadžić.
