Archangel Michael Cathedral in Sochi May Turn to Be Ancient

The Archangel Michael Cathedral in Sochi was constructed on the base of an ancient temple. 

Such an opinion was expressed by the archeologist and local historian Andrey Kizilov.

In the course of research work the scientist came to a conclusion that ruins of the ancient temple and the present building of Archangel Michael Church are located in the same place. 

The Archangel Michael Cathedral was opened in 1891. The church building was based on the remains of the ancient temple’s foundation. This was reported by A. Kizilov on the website of the Sochi department of the Russian Geographical Society.

Archival data mentions about the fact that the present church was based on remains of an ancient temple, but there is no reference of the exact place of ancient ruins.
