Rind Kirke

Rind Church is located south of Herning, and belongs to Rind Parish, together with Kollund and Kølkær Parish. It consists of Romanesque choir and nave with late Gothic tower and porch. The Romanesque parts are built in granite squares like so many typical Jutland churches. Above both the north and south doors there are lintels "tympanons", which show kinship with Gjellerup Church's lintels, and therefore it is assumed that the builder may have been the same. The church must therefore have been built around the middle of the 1100s. The church was rebuilt in 1898, and the interior restored in 1962. In 1994, a baptismal waiting room was built on the north side, with entrance via the former walled north door.
