The Krimulda Lutheran church is seen as one of the oldest in Latvia. It was built in the early 13th century, soon after the territory of Kubasele was conquered. Over the subsequent centuries, it has been rebuilt many times. Alongside the church is a meditation maze called "Lily Blossom." When the Liv warrior Kaupo fell in battle near Vīlande in 1217, his remains were supposedly interred at the church. Local residents, true, describe a small hillock that is near the church as the grave of Kaupo.

According to the statements of Chronicle of Henry of Livonia, the Krimulda County leader Kaupo, who had accepted Christianity around 1200. In 1203-1204, Kaupo went to Rome, where he met Pope Innocent III, to tell him about Livonia.  Krimulda Church (formerly called Kubesele Church) was founded in 1205. After the Liv chief and king Kaupo returned from Rome on September 8, 1204, with gifts from Pope Innocent, 100 pieces of gold, the priest Alobrand built a church in Kaupo, Kubesele. Although the Krimulda Church has been repeatedly destroyed and restored over time, it still keeps the character of the ancient church. The church was restored and rebuilt (mid-17th century, early 20th century).
