One of the oldest cathedrals of the Krasnoyarsk diocese, it is located at the highest point of Yeniseisk's historical part.
Passing through the cast-iron slabs with an elegant large pattern of the early 19th century on the first floor, you can go upstairs to the southern cold temple of Peter and Paul or the north one of Alexander Nevsky. The cathedral is crowned with a two-tier bell tower. The old interior and iconostases have been preserved in the cathedral, both in the church and in the side-altar. Cathedral is surrounded mostly by single-storeyed wooden houses.
For a long time Dormition Cathedral Church was the only one in the territory from Krasnoyarsk to the ocean. Yeniseisk Dormition Cathedral Church covered the entire region — missionary trips to Turukhansk, Podkamennaya Tunguska, the Angara, to the south of Kazachinsky and Pirovsky districts started from here.
Bible theological school was established in the Cathedral of the Dormition of the Mother of God. In Russia theology is mainly studied in Moscow and St. Petersburg. In many large cities there are religious seminaries but no theological schools, the priests don't carry out scientific work there. But in Yeniseisk Dormition Cathedral Church it is carried out. Thus, the cathedral has a high status not only official but also a spiritual one.
