This is very old church. The exact date of its construction is unknown, various researchers dated it from 1470 to 1550 years. Build it with natural white stone. Facades have trilobate frontons very characteristic of contemporary Moscow, and portals with carinate frontons. Crowned it with one dome having narrow windows.

Later the church was surrounded on all sides with porches; during restoration in 1930 – 40s the latter were demolished and restored primary appearance.
