Our Lady of Kazan Church

The Our Lady of Kazan Church was built in Irkutsk's Rabochee (Worker's) District between 1885 and 1892. It was dedicated to the Our Lady of Kazan Icon which was the same dedication as Irkutsk's main cathedral - the Our Lady of Kazan Cathedral which stood in the historical centre (once the kremlin) until it was demolished by the Bolsheviks in 1932. The current church was spared the fate of the similar same-named cathedral and recently underwent major restoration work to return it to its former glory in the Byzantine revival style.
