          Grīvaiši is an inhabited site about 30 km from Saldus near the Ezere road. The Grīvaiši church, cemetery and church pub form an ensemble of buildings typical of the Latvian countryside in the 18th and 19th centuries. The church and pub are built from adobe (a mixture of clay and chopped straw), a material quite prevalent in this area. The church’s interior objects include a rare Mannerist pulpit from the first half of the 17th century which was apparently brought here from an older church in the vicinity of Grīvaiši. The pulpit decoration was formed by gluing elements carved and then sawn out of trees onto boards.
