Photo and description
The Church of the Life-Giving Trinity was erected on the site of an old stone church of the first quarter of the 19th century that had previously been located here. The construction of the temple began in 1911 and ended in 1914
Even before the early 80s. for historians and ethnographers it remained a mystery to whom the project of the temple belonged. However, later it became known that the project of the temple was developed by the Chelyabinsk hereditary builder, architect P.A. Saraev - a respected person in the city. I. Kulakov supervised the construction work. The church was erected with funds donated by the industrialist Nikolai Pavlovich Pikhtovnikov.
In the late 1920s, like most religious buildings in the city of Chelyabinsk, the Church of the Life-Giving Trinity was “beheaded”. In 1929 g. the church building housed a local history museum. A new stage in the life of the temple began in 1990, when it was returned to believers again. Restoration work began in the church.
The large red-brick church of the Life-Giving Trinity is made in the pseudo-Russian architectural style. The building has a rather original layout. Above the rectangular volume, one can see a five-headed quadruple ascending, which is complicated on all four sides by the so-called faceted apse ledges with semi-domes. There is a hipped-roof bell tower above the entrance to the church.
