The snow-white church was built for the money of the citizens. There is a legend related to the Tikhvinskaya church and the icon of Holy Mother, it says about wonderful intervention of the Virgin in the battle between Yemelyan Pugachev's army and Kungur troops in 1774. In January the most furious assault started. The citizens of Kungur went out to defend their city under a banner of the Tikhvin icon of Divine Mother. Pugachev's people saw this mass of people, got afraid and withdrew.
