Borgund, at the mouth of the Lðrdal, has a small stave church, black with playing field, the best conserved in the country. It is thought to have been constructed about 1150. Apart from a window inserted at a later period it has been watchfully restored to its original form, preserving its original outline. The two doorways are luxuriously festooned, and the west entrance has a runic caption which helped to date the church. The interior also features a medieval square-shaped baptismal typescript made of soapstone. The belfry, between the old and the new church, was reinstated about 1660 in its old form.
