The main church of the Orthodox Church of Belarus. Initially, the monastery of Cosmas and Demian was located here, but in the XVII century the building was transferred to the Catholic Church and the Bernardine Order was housed in it. The cathedral returned to Orthodox believers only in the 19th century. In 1870, a monastery was opened at the temple. After the Revolution of 1917, church services were discontinued, but since 1942 the temple began to work again and was no longer closed.
