Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Sorrows is neo-romantic style church, with neo-gothic features. It is a rectangular basilica with a semicircular apse, with two side sacristies, and one tower. It has three naves, which are covered by cross vaults, and three altars. The churchyard fence - stone masonry. The building is of extraordinary constructional valour. Although the church interior is modest, but it is very bright. Large stones used in the construction were transported from all over the Salakas parish, and people spare no effort to build it. Therefore, in order to honour all contributed to the construction of the church, the commemorative plaque is embedded in the wall. A chapel made of millstones, which was constructed by G. Laucius, is present in the churchyard. 117 millstones were used to build it!
