At the junction with Xiangyang Road S., this distinctively blue-domed church was built in 1934 to serve the White Russian refugee community, of which its architect, A. Yaron, was a member. Modelled on the Savior's Cathedral in Moscow, the church until 1939 had two bishops, two archimandrites, three patriarchs, six priests and monks, two deacons, a warden and a secretary.
