Trinity Church, constructed between 1827 and 1832, is close to Pyatino hamlet (western edge of Ulyanovsk region). Previously, the noble family of Annenkov owned a manor just close to the church.
The internal domes and columns of the church are collapsing as it is quickly deteriorating. It seems as though no one is concerned about keeping it. One of the most fascinating Russian landscapes is the Pyatino landscape.
Since I had the opportunity to see a church ruin painted in the hues of the sunrise on the way from another, more well-known spot, I decided to stop by even though it wasn’t a top priority for me. So, after giving up a few hours of sleep, I eventually arrived at a little Serbian village, and all that was left was a quick stroll through the winding alleyways to get to the place before the sun rose.
A deserted chapel surrounded by a flowery bush was there, stranded in the middle of nowhere. The finest time to view this still-elegant ruin was probably when I arrived, as the sky’s hue was transitioning from dark blue to dusky pink. We were enticed to take a closer look at the colours of the sunrise that wonderfully complemented the deteriorating red brick walls. Only the aforementioned flowers made it fairly difficult to get to the church, and it appeared that one careless step could send you beneath in this sea of vegetation. Even so, it was still able to approach the structure and peer inside carefully and methodically.
Given the state of the building, it is obvious that not much was inside; deterioration had almost completely destroyed it, leaving only the void.
Only a few frescoes and other small aspects could be seen of the church throughout the times when it was still in use.
The chapel’s outside appeared to be in good shape, but its interior was in poor shape, and the only thing to see inside was some deteriorating frescoes.
So that was the end of a brief detour on the route spent examining this location, which was nonetheless charming despite its destruction. The final glance at the jungle that envelops the cathedral comes to a conclusion.
