The Temple of the Holy Martyr of Tatyana was built on the project of the famous architect Andrei Obolensky, who participated in the reconstruction of the Church of Christ the Savior and implemented more than 50 projects of the temple complexes in Moscow and other regions of Russia. Funds for the construction of the new temple were allocated from the charity fund «Lukoil». The height of the temple from the base to the cross is 48 meters.
The painting of the walls and vaults was performed by Tomsk iconographers in the Serbo-Byzantine style, the concept was developed by the members of the Union of Artists of Russia Sergey and Julia Astafurovs. The main theme of the stenography of the lower chapel was the stories from Life of Peter and February, Epiphany of Russia, the upper - Last Supper, Ascension of the Lord, Presentation, Divine Phenomenon. Conditions for the stay of low-mobility groups of the population have been created in the temple. Eleven bells have been installed on a two-level belfry. The Moscow Kremlin ringer Konstantin Mishurovsky tuned the bells.
In the temple there is a special shrine - an ark with the relics of the martyr Tatiana. In front of the temple there is a well-organized square. The church was consecrated by the Patriarch of Moscow and all Russia Kirill on September 9, 2018.
