Introduction


High above the stream of the Tolminka rises a WOODEN SHRINE - THE MEMORIAL CHURCH OF THE HOLY SPIRIT IN JAVORCA, dedicated to fallen Austro-Hungarian defenders of the Tolmin battlefield on the Soča (Isonzo) Front (1915–1917).

Over the entrance door the inscription reads: This monument was built during the war by members of the 3rd Mountain Brigade, a battle unit of the 15th Corps, in honour and memory of their comrades who fell here.Built in the period from 1 March to 1 November 1916. The building was designed by the Vienna painter and stage set designer Remigius Geyling (1878–1974), then a first lieutenant, while the organisation and management of the construction was headed by the Hungarian-born Lieutenant Géza Jablonszky.

Above the entrance rises the bell tower with a sundial, the imperial crest and the inscription PAX (peace). The exterior is also adorned with THE CRESTS OF THE 20 PROVINCES THAT MADE UP AUSTRIA-HUNGARY.
