In 1931 the temple was destroyed to the ground with explosives, to lead to the construction of the Palace of the Soviets. The church was rebuilt in the 1990s and returned to be consecrated in 2000. The temple was conceived as a monument to the courage of the Russian people in their fight against the Napoleonic invasion of 1812. The cathedral was built with donations from people .
