Szekler gates in the village

There are more than 30 carved gates in the village on which one can find all the traditional motives (tulips, buds, leaves, trailers etc). Gate-carving is a living tradition here. Carving, that sometimes takes 16-20 days (after the careful selection of the wood and the preparation of the parts) is made by skilled carvers with special tools and methods.
