Rich Church decoration and architecture of the temples are the cultural value of the people. This was in response to the need of the Golden domes, said the Chairman of the Department for external Church relations of the Moscow Patriarchate Metropolitan Hilarion of Volokolamsk, reports RIA Novosti.
“It’s all cultural heritage”, — explained the representative of the Russian Orthodox Church, citing the example of Diamond Fund exhibits in the Tretyakov gallery and the Hermitage.
“Temples which are now under construction, will eventually be recognized by monuments of architecture — they will be admired as we admire today, ancient temples,” added the Metropolitan.
