    The Church of the Holy Monastery of the entry here was built for local residents. The architect of the building became p. Bregen. Church is popularly called "red Church" due to the characteristic color of the lining. In the summer of 1907 year sacral complex was consecrated here began to go worship. But they lasted not for long: already in 1935 year the Soviets seized the building, and in 1938-m Temple and it is closed. Here was located the State Archive, all the same decoration and the icons were stolen or destroyed. In the year 1942-in the midst of war-the faithful Ivanovo tried to reopen the temple. But power was relentless and all applications for the opening of the rejected. The first condition for the reactivation of the construction was the presence of 20 parishioners. Only 1988 year such numbers were collected as a result, the Orthodox community in Ivanovo was allowed to exist officially. In the year 1989 the community no longer collected 20 and 3000 signatures requesting the transfer of the temple under the authority of the Church. The authorities denied. In March of the same year, four women gathered near the building of the cinema. On a poster near them there that women will not eat and drink before the opening of the sacred buildings. The following day the women were forcibly moved to the territory of the temple, where it stages they spent 12 days. During this time, at the gates of the complex crowd were again collected many signatures for the opening of the Church. News about the hunger strike reached Moscow and leaked even abroad. On the 12nd day the women were transported to the regional hospital. There the authorities spoke with them, and only after promises of considering petitions, the women stopped the hunger strike. As a result, in 1990 year Temple was handed over to the community. By the time the building was a miserable spectacle: many Windows were broken, punched the roof everywhere visible traces of pogroms.

    The monastery is located in Ivanovo and by the standards of the city is large enough. Female monastery. Built of red brick-almost darkened and has dark dome that creates a little gloomy impression. Inside the Church is very beautiful. Painting icons-mesmerizing. Often the choir sings during the service.
