The new Church of St Nicholas of the Summer, in Donje Nerodimlje, was built on the ancient foundations in 1983. It was a single-nave building with an altar apse and a little dome. In front of it, facing west, there stood a hundred-years-old oak tree where the congregation used to gather even at times when the church was in ruins.

The church was demolished, burned and destroyed by Albanian extremists after the arrival of the US forces of KFOR.
