After a bit of confusion I got inside this beautiful gem of a church. There is a bit of restoration taking place which makes it look closed. Worth a visit to say a prayer ans light a candle.

Enjoyed seeing the historic church, especially after having learned a little about Russian Orthodox history earlier in the week from our tour guide Dennis Keen.
Actually toured while a service was going on and was very interesting. Make sure to cover your head when you enter and be very quiet if service is going on. Do not take pictures of people in the church.

Unfortunately the outside was partly hidden by the scaffolding but was still able to see it's magnificence. There was service on inside, the singing was beautiful and the general feeling was one of peacefulness. Really enjoyed

This cathedral is probably the number 1 sight in Almaty. Unfortunately, it underwent a major renovation at the time we visited the place. Nevertheless, you are able to enter and witness babies being baptized and locals praying to God.
