Right after the Ordelian conquest in 1227 a chapel was built to Valjala. A layer of its walls is still there as is a fragment of the paintings that beautified the chapel--the church stands on top of the chapel. There are also pieces of the Vikings related trapeze shaped grave stones only found in Western-Estonia in the wall.
