I’ve lost the faith a little bit with this blog in recent weeks, plus I’ve been snowed under with my A to Z posts on Family History Across the Seas.
I took this photo a few weeks ago. It’s of a little Greek Orthodox-style chapel adjoining the Kalymnos Club in McMillans Road. There’s a very large Greek population in Darwin, mostly originating from the island of Kalymnos so there’s strong cultural and religious practices.
Admittedly I’m not confident about this story, but I’m told that the little chapel had been meant to be a place of worship but there was some mix-up with laying the altar stone. Now, this may all be a furphy so I’m happy for anyone who knows more about it, to jump in and comment on this post.
Whatever the story behind the chapel, I just think it’s really cute and presently looking very flash with a new coat of paint.
