    Finally saw a new temple new martyrs and confessors of Russia. Powerfully! It's beautiful!!!! The huge Cathedral and the very interesting paintings inside. The territory of the monastery is a small green oasis in the center of Moscow. All very beautiful roses, hydrangeas, a small pond with goldfish.

    The stunning Church of the resurrection and the Holy new martyrs of Russia. Outside-noble biblical drawings on white-beige marble and totally unique dome! Inside-Russian icons (?) school, beautiful painting on the stories of the old and New Testaments, unique chandelier, painting the dome of the temple and the altar-without words! The relics of the Holy Martyr Hilarion now transferred to this shrine. For the disabled and the elderly a lift (!). Beautiful place!

    Beautiful and well-groomed territory. The temple was built on the site of a meeting in 14 b. Vladimir icon of the mother of God, which according to legend saved Moscow from attacks of Tamerlane. Since then, she is considered the patroness of Moscow. You come inside and immediately feel how this place namoleno! In the church there are several famous shrines, namely: the icon of the mother of God of Vladimir (the original is in the Tretyakov Gallery), the relics of the Holy Martyr Hilarion, a copy of the shroud of Turin, etc. The temple, like many church facilities, after the revolution has been redeveloped, the walls are plastered with wallpaper. Fortunately, when they withdrew, the ancient frescoes were little damaged. Temple, of course, very beautiful. We must not forget to descend into the basement, entrance to which is located on the left side. There is a well-lit copy of the shroud of Turin. First saw her in such great form. Super! By the way, someone may seem interesting that on one of the towers of the temple placed watch-rare enough fact. Summary: to visit!

  • Chanting, grace of God
  • good
  • Best Orthodox website for news and articles
