The first mention of the Church in Šimanovci dates back to 1756 together with the temple of Saint Nicholas, probably located on the place of today’s church. Present Church was erected in around 1790 in baroque style and devoted to translation of relics of the Saint Nicholas. The iconostasis was made by the painter Konstantin Lekic from Zemun in 1822, as witnessed by the note on inner side of iconostasis. The iconostasis was consecrated in the same year during the times of Metropolitan Stevan Stratimirovic. Church tower was torn down during the World War II i.e. in September 1943. Only one side leaning on the church had been preserved making Šimanovci recognizable for more then 60 years. The tower was rebuilt completely in 2005 and original appearance was restored. This is probably the most beautiful structure in the area. Šimanovci had also a small parish building, which was dilapidated. New parish building was rebuilt in 2007 to meet all the needs of this religious community. The fence of the churchyard is being renovated presently, as well as the interior and exterior of the holy temple.
