Temple of the Mother of God

As promised, here is the full view of the church from Thursday's Theme Day post. This is the front of the church. I love how ornate it is, and unlike almost all of the other churches I've seen in Moscow, it's almost entirely exposed brick, rather than being painted. As you can see in the picture below, only accents are painted. The one thing I find funny is the bright yellow wall - it is part of the church's territory, but nothing on the church is painted is yellow!posted by Ashira
