Church of the Holy Archangel Michael, Arača

There is no reliable data in historical sources to help date the Church of the Holy Archangel Michael; all that is known is that at the beginning of the 18th century, after the Turks left the Banat district, it lay in ruins.

The imposing structure, raised on the river Tisa, not far from Novi Bečej, is characteristic in its floor-plan and layout of Benedictine churches in the transitional Romano-Gothic style (semicircular, stilted arches, and narrow, semicircular windows) and therefore suggests that construction began at the end of the 12th or beginning of the 13th century. The gothic steeple was added at the end of the 14th century.
