Paluküla church is located in Pühalepa Parish, Hiiu County, Estonia. The church was founded by the baronial family of Ungern-Sternberg in 1820. Until 1939, it was in use as a supporting chapel for the Kärdla church.

Paluküla church had 100 seats. There was no pastorate or graveyard near the church, just a church in a woodland close to the pass-way. In 1939 the Soviet military used the building as a warehouse and the tower as an watching position. After the Second World War the building was not active as a church and it served as a warehouse while being gradually abandoned, until in 1989 the tower was ruined by a fire.
