The Holy Trinity Monastery is one of the oldest temples of Siberia and takes a special place in the history of Tyumen. The monastery is associated with the name of St. Philotheus Leshchinsky – the Metropolitan of Tobolsk and All Siberia of the Wonderworker.
The monastery was rebuilt twice. In 1622, it was made of wood; the Tsar Mikhail Fedorovich Romanov himself presented the bells, icons and books. However, in 1705 the building burned down during a big fire. Then Philotheus Leshchinsky, already a metropolitan of Siberia, turned to Peter I with a request for the revival of the temple. The emperor agreed and ordered to allocate a thousand rubles for its construction.
Philotheus personally followed the constructing works. Masters-monks were invited from Kiev to draw the icons. The abbey was terrific with its beauty. And now, you can’t take your eyes off the temple.
In the Holy Trinity Monastery Philotheus Leshchinsky remained until the end of his days. Here the relics of the saint are kept; believers from all over the country come here to visit the sacred place.
