Putin will show: the Memorial Church to the soldiers who fell during the capture of Kazan in 1552

The sad story of the great temple-monument to the soldiers who fell during the capture of Kazan in 1552. The memorial temple to fallen soldiers is a memorial church in honor of the icon of the Savior, not made by hands. After the capture of Ivan the Terrible by Kazan, the fallen soldiers were buried in a mass grave, on top of which a mound was poured. Later, soldiers of the Kazan garrison were also buried here.


The miraculous Image of the Savior - the most unusual in the rich religious architecture of Kazan. He stands on an island on the river Kazanka. hell mass grave on the orders of the king erected a temple, but it had to be moved to a higher place because of the floods that flooded the temple every spring. A chapel remained at the burial site, and only in 1823 a monument-temple, created by architect Nikolai Alferov, appeared here. The monument is a truncated pyramid, its height is 20 meters. On four sides there are entrances to the building.

Getting to the temple is not so easy. The car had to be thrown at the Emergencies Ministry. Parking at the temple is practically nowhere. From the power of space for 3 cars. From a distance, we saw fishermen, steps down and saw better times. At the moment, the temple is surrounded by fences. Restoration work is underway. Already as 2 years, but the builders will not be able to do anything by sight. Deadline December 2016.

The project of the temple was executed by the architect NF Alferov, the author of a similar monument in Sevastopol. In 1831-1832, the church was reconstructed under the leadership of PG Pyatnitsky, the builder of Kazan University. In 1958, the last reconstruction of the temple took place, during which wall paintings were lost. A sand spit leads to the temple, ending with an old bridge.

In 1918, the church was closed and looted, and with the beginning of perestroika it turned out to be completely abandoned. In 1956, when creating the Kuibyshev reservoir, the mound was flooded and turned into a small island in the mouth of the river Kazanka. However, in 2001, a parish was created and services began on major holidays, and in March 2005, the Church was handed over to the Russian Orthodox Church. Work began on the restoration of the building, repair and restoration.

From the spit there is a beautiful view of the Kazan Kremlin.

Today, the Temple is in a deplorable state - money for repairs and restoration is not allocated, and few enthusiasts buy building materials for their own money. These are mainly pensioners and, unfortunately, they cannot allocate a large amount. The temple continues to collapse, almost no one visits it, and the financial support of the ROC is still words. The iconostasis in the Temple is plywood, icons are cardboard ... It’s impossible to enter the territory of the temple as everything is fenced off.

The island was chosen by fishermen, as tourists are now very rare guests.



Here they are - Napoleonic plans ...

But the reality ... By the way, in the middle of December 2014, inscriptions in Russian and Tatar languages ​​were inscribed on the portals and columns of the temple-monument from three sides: “1552”, “Lena, why did you baptize our children. Your Ilfatik ”,“ 1552 Nobody is forgotten Nothing is forgotten ”,“ Azatlyk ”and“ Tatar uyan ”. The trace of the number two in red, you can still see on the right column.

Very sad...
