Photographer's Note

Church of Repose of the Virgin in Uglich, in St Alexey Monastery.
Church was build in year 1628. Such design of the churches - with three vertical high spires - was quite popular in Russia at the time.
When bold and energetic Patriarch Nikon become the leader of Russian Orthodox Church, he started the campaign against such design of the temple - with some teological explanation, I really can;t understand them.
As a result, such churches become quite few, so this three-domed one are rare example.
