Rebirth of the Shrine

April 10, 2012

In 2010, BBG AS, a financial group in Latvia and the parent company of Baltikums Bank, made a decision to give its equity in Baltikums Nams, which owned a land parcel on Turaidas Street in Jūrmala, to the Orthodox Church of Latvia – contributing to the re-creation of the Orthodox temple of Our Lady of Kazan. 

The construction plan was developed on the basis of a design assignment from the Synod of the Orthodox Church of Latvia and the City Planning Department of the Jūrmala City Council statement No. 467 dated 3 April 2012. 

The construction plan includes construction of an Orthodox temple at the historic location of an Orthodox temple on Turaidas Street 11 in Dzintari, which was demolished in 1962.
