This place of worship was built in the Neo-Byzantine style between 1844–1848. The plan of the orthogonal basilica, erected at the site where the Chapel of the Birth of the Virgin Mary had been standing since 1820, was designed by the architect Johann Gottfried Gutensohn of Munich, Bavaria. The original church bells dating back to 1835 and 1847 were made by W. Sedlmayer of Planá and J. di Valle of Cheb and were partly commandeered during the world wars. The church was consecrated by the Abbot Heinl in 1848 and by the Cardinal and Archbishop B. of Schwarzenberk in 1850.
