Budeşti Josani church
The church of Saint Nicholas in Budeşti Josani ("Lower Budeşti") in the village of Budeşti in the region of Maramureş, Cosău valley in Romania is representative of the characteristic wooden churches of Maramureş with double eaves. It is one of eight wooden churches of Maramureş that UNESCO has listed as a World Heritage Site.

Construction
The wooden church at Budeşti Josani was dated by an inscription on the portal from 1643. Unfortunately the inscription was lost during the enlargement of the entrance in 1923. The inscription was verified dendrochronologically and the log structure was firmly dated from the winter 1642-43, i.e. the moment the timbers were felled. This church appears to have been built by the same master carpenter who built the wooden churches at Slătioara (before 1639) and Sârbi Susani (1639).
