  The Evangelic church was built in 1860 on the location of a older church, pieces of which can be seen at the base of the late-Gothic tower. The priest of that days was Weber Alfred Schuller. Still to be found are a bell from 1882 and two others from 1927 as well as paintings and sculptures bought in 1872. The church had initially a clock and an organ, non of them being still in use. The last restorations and thorough repairs took place in 1991. The parish was founded in the XVI-th century.

  The Orthodox church, built from wood, decorated with paintings made by the painter Mare from Reghin, was built in 1832 on the location of another church built in 1750 and sold to Oarba de Mureș.
