Aura’s beautiful wooden church was completed in 1804 under the leadership of church builder Mikael Piimänen. It’s the third church built on the same site. The belfry next to the church dates back to 1774. The drawings of the church were drawn up by A. Almfeld at the Chief Curator’s Office in Stockholm and the builder was Mikael Piimänen.
As early as 1636, this site had its own church, possibly built as early as the 16th century. The parish’s second church was built in 1691. It was a long church sageded from logs. Kakskerta’s Myllykylä still has a residential building made of logs from the second church in Prunkkala.
