      Start of construction of the Cathedral of the Dormition of the Mother of God in Khabarovsk refers to 1876. For the construction of this temple Irkutsk archbishop was sent 15 thousand rubles. Construction lasted for about ten years, and in 1886 completed the construction of the main volume. In December of the same year held its first service in honor of the Nativity of Christ. By 1905 construction and finishing works have been completed.

      The further fate of the cathedral sad - in 1930 by the decision of the Soviet authorities was destroyed, and no talk about his recovery was not conducted until 1999. The beginning of the new millennium was marked by the restoration of the Cathedral of the Assumption. The architecture of the new five-domed temple follows the structure of the demolished monument, the overall style is also in the style of the former building. The main difference lies in the dimensions of the building of the cathedral - they are not typical of Orthodox architecture. The total height of the new church is more than 50 meters, it is crowned with seven razzalochanymі domes, which is perfectly visible at the entrance to Khabarovsk.
