The Temple of All Religions or the Universal Temple is an architectural complex in the Staroye Arakchino Microdistrict of Kazan, Tatarstan,Russia. It consists of several types of religious architecture including an Orthodox church, a mosque, and a synagogue, among others. It is currently under construction, having been started in 1992 by local artist and philanthropist Ildar Khanov. The structure serves as a cultural center and a residence for Khanov and his assistants.Khanov is known for his efforts in the treatment of alcoholism, drug addiction, and various other diseases. His former and current patients help him to maintain and develop the Temple, either by direct involvement in the construction work or through sponsorship.The structure is not an active temple of any one religion, but rather, as Khanov describes its mission, a "temple of culture and truth". It has become a popular landmark in the city of Kazan, which takes pride in the peaceful combination of different cultures . The Temple is visited both by tourists and by people seeking Khanov's help.

  • Will not be repeated in detail about this place has written below. I would like to say that the idea of the creator of all that great, but the execution quite tiap-liap. I understand of course that recently was fire, but owners of buildings obviously lacks the finances to restore all this and/or bring it to a decent appearance. I would recommended to go here if you're on your own, and you have some extra minutes 30-40 time (since the building of this outside the city). By taxi (or "private tour") I would not here went-not worth it. And in the summer, probably here scenic view on the Volga River, in the winter, all white, all must be compared in a single.
