The large standalone bell-tower of Pokrovsky Sobor (Intersession Cathedral, well known from 19th as St. Basil’s Cathedral) was built in 17th century during the reign of Tsar Alexis I at the Cathedral’s southeastern corner, right on the site of demolished old detached belfry which basement was reused for the new bell tower. The tower for bell ringing was adorned with tall single tented roof in the vernacular (Russian) style that can be seen from all sides of the church, including its western part.
