Krestovozdvizhenskaya church

Church for the sake of Vozdvizhenija Life-giving Lord’s cross (Krestovozdvizhenskaya church)

Stone church, instead of wooden one on the KrestovskyMountain, was put on means of Irkutsk petty bourgeois I.F.Amosov. In May, 1747 the construction of a new temple started and was finished by winter of 1760. In 1779 on donations of merchants of S.Dudorovsky and Z.Sh.Chegorina warm northern side-altar was added. Originally both wooden and stone churches were called Trinity-Sergievsky.But as far as there was one more Trinity church in the city for convenience a temple on a mountain was renamed in Krestovozdvizhenskaya. The Krestovozdvizhenskaya church has received the popularity thanks to a unique decorative plasticity of facades. The rich ornament fills all fields of temple walls, almost without leaving free planes. The most complicated patterns are created by various combinations of geometrical figures. The character of an ornament and a sculptural plasticity of a wall give associations with east motives. Till 1950 unique mica windows were reminded in the church, but subsequently they were replaced with usual glass. Street Sedova, 1
