Silver Domes of Twelve Apostles' Church (Moscow Kremlin)
Majestic five-dome church of Twelve Apostles commissioned by Patriarch Nikon as part of his stately residence in Moscow Kremlin in 1653 and dedicated to Philip the Apostle three years later. The church modeled on the Church of the Assumption (save that of the domes are for decoration only, serving no functional purpose). However, Nikon did not rule the church completely finished, which was done under Patriarch Joachim, who consecrated the church in the name of the Twelve Apostles in 1680.
