Church of Elijah the Prophet in Obydensky lane
Church of Elijah the Prophet in Obydensky lane
The church has an unusual name because its wooden predecessor was erected on the site in just one day: "the day" is mentioned in ancient times. The stone church was built in 1702 and has been in service for more than 300 years. The church got lucky, for unlike many Orthodox churches, it was not neglected or closed during Soviet times. Now many religious relics can be found here.

Church of Elias the Prophet (Exaltation of Christ the Lord) in Cherkizovo
The Moscow church named after Holy Elias in Cherkizovo was built in 1690 on the site of a burned wooden church that stood here already in 1370. In the 14th century, Cherkizovo village belonged to an émigré from the Horde, Prince Serkiz, who sold it to his countryman Ilya Azakov. The latter, in all likelihood, also established the very old Church of Elias here in honour of his saint.
