Under the Tent-Like Canopy Over the Cross
The colorful tent-like canopy over the cross-shaped fountain was built in 1872 in the middle of Cathedral Square of Holy Trinity St. Sergius Lavra. In summer season, the fountain receives water from the spring located inside the Chapel-over-the-Well, the nice pink building in background of this picture constructed at the end of the 17th century and richly decorated in style of Muscovite baroque.
In winter season the fountain is turned off and thousands of pilgrims who come to the at this time take the holy water have to enter into the small chapel, that opened all-year round.
