Cathedral of the Epiphany

The first cathedral of the Epiphany had been built in wood in 1620 by the Governor of Tomsk, Prince Ivan Chakhovsky. In 1777, near the crumbling building the foundations of the new cathedral in stone were laid. It was built in the Siberian baroque style of the 18th century. It was in this cathedral that on August 6th 1804 the decree of Tsar Alexander I on the foundation of the province of Tomsk was proclaimed. In 1918, the Cathedral of the Epiphany was the first to close down among all the churches in Tomsk. In 1944 the building was returned to the orthodox diocese and the restoration work started. Now religious services resumed.
