It reveals the identity of the temple, also the specificity of architecture has been shown, the exterior, interior, iconostasis have been described, including ceremonial clerics’ vestments. The key to determining the temple’s identity was the elucidation of the role of Vasily Stepanovich Goryaev, a “stone apprentice”.
