St Peter and Paul´s Chapel is a tiny building set in the corner of the wall of Capuchin Monastery in Jejkov. The chapel was built in 1657 near a ford across the river Jihlava.
The Chapel was built on the place where protestants said good bye to their fellow-citizens who were leaving the town for exile in 1629.
The chapel was built by Pavel Blažek, a Jejkov miller in 1657. The chapel was originally built open, the walls were bricked up later in 1875. In 1938 the chapel was dismantled because of building of the new sewerage and mending the road. It was built again in the corner of the monastery garden.
There is a stony plate above the entrance of the chapel.The text mentions the restorations in 1829 and 1875.
The author of the altarpiece of St Peter and Paul was a teacher of Grammar School in Třebíč Josef Kozlanský.
