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.

  • All religions temple is located on the outskirts of Kazan. A bus stop is located next door for pedestrians who want to go there. It is a (unfinished) temple, which includes 16 religions, we can recognize some of them with some distinctive signs on the roofs. Genuine curiosity that deserves that we will stop even if inside many things remain to be done.

  • Quite an interesting temple, visited with excursion. The guide told interesting facts, think alone does not make sense to ride. This temple is included in the standard in Sviyazhsk and turns along the way. Specially the ride doesn't make sense. Far away.

  • The building is interesting for its architecture, in the dark backlight not unfortunately. For the input asking 50 p per person whether adult/child, no benefits. Inside look especially nothing nothing officers themselves don't tell may have had of course themselves asking in General for the amateur ... In April 2017, as we were told there was a fire, it might have been more interesting ... We are working on the restoration, offered the child to assemble the puzzle of glass to decorate columns, in fact it was the most interesting, thanks! If the car is worth and have time to call

Where to stay in Kazan

Home to numerous sights and known as the Third Capital of Russia, the city of Kazan is the prime destination in Tatarstan. The city boasts a selection of accommodations to match every taste and budget. While it may lack the extravagance of some of Moscow's high-end hotels, it still offers a good selection of both modern and historical luxury lodging. Most of the city's best-known hotels sit relatively close to the center, so you don't have to worry about long commutes. Venture just beyond the center to find several smaller boutique hotels, bed and breakfasts, and hostels, as well as numerous fully furnished apartments available for short-term rental.
