Kirzhach is a town and the authoritative focal point of Kirzhachsky District in Vladimir Oblast, Russia, situated on the Kirzhach River in the west of the oblast. The town is named after the Kirzhach River. The foundation of the name kirzh compares to a Moksha or Erzya word signifying "left". It was set up in the 14th century as a sloboda relegated to the Annunciation Monastery. The last was set up by Saint Sergius of Radonezh, who lived in the zone somewhere in the range of 1354 and 1358.
For a large portion of its history, the convent remained vigorously subordinate upon the Trinity Lavra of St. Sergius, which lies 48 kilometers toward the west. After the religious community was disbanded in 1764, the sloboda was allowed city rights in 1778. Thereafter, Kirzhach, the same number of different towns in the region, grew basically as a material focus. Kirzhach is well known for its incredible religious community Blagoveschensky cathedral.
The small katholikon, raised amid the rule of Ivan the Terrible, complies with the early Muscovite kind of house of God church. It is normally viewed as one of the last and loveliest examples of this preservationist strain. The religious community has an extremely fascinating structure-it is an open display. This display interfaces the house of God with the adjacent Savior church, which has a square pinnacle and a tent-like spire. This congregation is a tomb of noticeable Russian boyars-Miloslavskys.
