  • The Cathedral of the Holy Wives-Myrrh-Bearers in Baku was built in 1909 according to the project of the Russian architect Fedor Mikhailovich Verzhbitsky. Funds for this project were allocated by the Military Ministry of Tsarist Russia, as well as a private donation made by Baku merchant Haji Zeynalabdin Tagiyev. The name of the cathedral has its own history. The cathedral was consecrated in honor of the women who, on the first day after Saturday, came to the Tomb of the resurrected Jesus Christ for ritual smearing of the body with incense and peace. Hence the name of the cathedral in Baku. In 1909, the Cathedral was built for the 206th Salyan Infantry Regiment stationed in Baku.
