The Zimbor wooden church built in XVII century reveals the construction year in the sculpture of the entrance cemetery's door: "Years from Is Hs 1643". The chorus dates since 1982. Initially was a towerless church disposed right on ground. The basic motif of interior painting was the rope one, which appears from entrance's decoration frame.

Unfortunately the painting didn't resist up until our days, although it was made along time after construction's finalization, but the bad roof's maintenance, rain's infiltration resulted popular authentic painting's deterioration. The narthex and altar's scenes remain as a testimony of a long passed era. The Christians attracted by the valley's wall church left the sanctuary and only the reparation works from 2009 stopped to perish this pearl among the churches from Almaș valley.
