Wooden Church Cupseni village cemetery, probably dates from 1600 at the latest in the eighteenth century. The legend says she was moved one night from Partin's garden to her place in the cemetery. The church has modest dimensions, covered with shingles.

The tower has two bells cast in Cluj in 1861 and 1883 and a closed arbor. At the base of the helmet are four towers, which show that the village had a council of elders. Interior painting done in 1823 did not last time, they are severely damaged large areas especially in the walls.

The only place where biblical scenes are seen is the wall opposite the iconostasis. The likely author of the painting is Radu Munteanu, helped by Partenie Buda or Mihai Palcoviciu. The iconostasis keeps pretty good, it has three registers, but it has no royal doors. There are angels on the altar vault.
