The Church on Blood in Honour of All Saints Resplendent in the Russian Land is one of the most famous and beautiful sights of Yekaterinburg. It was built in 2000-2003 on the site where the former Emperor Nicholas II of Russia and several members of his family and household were executed following the Bolshevik Revolution on the night of July, 16-17, 1918. The temple on Blood includes a room where Emperor Nicholas II of Russia and his family were executed with present original remains of Ipatevskiy house design, and its altar is located near to a direct place of execution of the Imperial family. Here are located the museum which exhibits are devoted to last days of Romanov's family life, and also auditorium on 160 places. On a photo you can see an altar of the execution room.
Only in 2000, after Nicholas II glorification and his family at the Arhiereyskiy Cathedral of Russian Orthodox Church began building of the temple at the execution place. On September, 23, 2000 arrived on consecration of building of a temple Patriarch Alex II had put in the basis of a temple a capsule with the memorable writing about the consecration carried out there. The project of the future temple also was changed. The new project which authors were architects V. P. Morozov, V. Y. Grachev and the main architect of a region G. V. Mazaev, was approved by town-planning council of Yekaterinburg and the Diocese. According to the official version, as a cause of a failure of K. Efremova's project was the unwillingness of the author to consider the remark of town-planning council and to make changes in work. Temple building was conducted very fast. It was supposed to finish building and to consecrate a cathedral by 85-year-old anniversary of the Romanov's family destruction. Therefore daily on building worked up to 300 persons in two shifts.
