Orthodox temple is an orthodox symbol of belief. At all times and everywhere, where orthodox belief was, Christians built temples, cathedrals, churches, monasteries. Samara also has a lot of different churches and temples. For example, Temple of the Holy Martyrs Vera, Nadezhda, Lubov and mother their Sophia; Chapel of St. Alexis, Metropolitan of Moscow; Holy Resurrection Cathedral; Cathedral of Kirill and Methodius and many other beautiful churches. There are 28 temples, 1 monastery and 5 chapels in Samara city. In January 1850 at the initiative of citizens Iversky nunnery was opened in Samara. The Iversky Women's Monastery, or nunnery, was once home to more than 500 nuns. Some of the churches are built of wood without using any nails. The oldest one is Pokrovsky Temple (1861).
