The church was built on a picturesque bank of the Tobol river and could be well observed from the distance, since it dominated over all smaller buildings in the town. The church was 35 meters high. According to the memoirs, bell chime from the church could be clearly heard in every corner of the town. There was a three-layer iconostasis 11,5 meters high that was of unique artistic value. In 1931 the major spiritual symbol of Yalutorovsk was sipped off the face of the earth. A color picture of the church have been preserved up to now that can verify its grandeur and beauty.
The fate of the church was shared by Voznessenskaya church built in honour of the victory of Russia over Napoleon.
In 1872 near the cemetery where the Decembrists were buried the Nikolskaya church was constructed, and was functioning with some disruptions during the Soviet regime. In 1954 the church was partially reconstructed, and a side-chapel of the VirginвЂ™s Assumption was built. Since then it was named the Nikolsko-Uspenskaya church. In the year of Millenium a chapel was erected in memory of the demolished Sretenski church. In 2003 a stone was laid as a symbol of revival of the Sretenski church.
