The wooden church in Botean was built in 1720 instead of an older church on a hill in the middle of the village. The elders of the village learned from their ancestors about a church moved by them a kilometer into the village hearth. The church plan is rectangular with only one ship and polygonal apse. From the shingle roof rises the tower with rectangular coil.

The walls of the church were covered with a plaster of earth over which it was covered with lime. The interior is covered with painting. The iconostasis has four registers. Under the Crucifixion the apostles' line appears, and in the next register the paintings inspired by the life of Christ.

The altars were painted on the altars, and on the pillars between flower doors. On the walls of the nave are the Passions of Jesus. The four corners of the vault are marked by the faces of the four evangelists, accompanied by their characteristic symbols. The scene with Adam and Eve appears on the western wall of the ship. On the northern wall of the apse are those who probably contributed to the painting of the church. In the narthex are portraits of the mironosițe, the mad women, but also the death with the scythe and the rake. Also here in a circular medallion appears 1802, the date of painting.
