During the bombing of the city in 1849, the interior of the church has changed description, decorations and wall paintings have been destroyed. Also, archives were destroyed and therefore little is known about the history of this temple. The church was restored by Mary Trandafil, the largest Serbian benefactor, with her husband John.
