Zakrevsky Pyramid

Architecture

The ancestral tomb of the Zakrevsky family in the unusual shape of an Egyptian pyramid was built in Berezova Rudka at the end of the 19th century by the famous lawyer Hnat Zakrevsky, who was in the service of Emperor Oleksandr III, was a member of the Masonic lodge and admired Egyptian culture. According to one version, he was also Russia's ambassador to Egypt.

The chapel-mausoleum built by him over the grave of his ancestors most likely has a secret symbolic meaning. The funeral building combined the classical forms of the Egyptian pyramid and pagan paraphernalia with Orthodox symbols. Thus, the entrance to the chapel was "guarded" by a statue of the goddess Isis brought by Zakrevsky from Egypt, and an Orthodox cross was placed on the portico above the entrance. In the center of the hall was an Orthodox altar with a large stone cross.

Hnat Zakrevsky himself died in 1906 in Egypt, his embalmed body was brought to Berezova Rudka and buried in the mausoleum.

Pyramid in Berezova Rudka is one of the three pyramidal temples in Ukraine. During the Soviet rule, the chapel was desecrated and looted, now the building is in a bad condition.

Bilevych Pyramid-Tomb

Temple , Architecture

The burial pyramid in Komendantivka, based on the tombs of Egyptian pharaohs, is a 15-meter granite tetrahedron.

Oleksandr Bilevych, an officer of the Russian fleet, who participated in the Russian-Turkish war and fought in the Balkans, being in Egypt in the early 1860s as part of a limited contingent of Russian troops, impressed by the pyramids he saw there, built a pyramid temple in 1864 in to his estate near the village of Komendantivka.

The pyramid was built from granite blocks mined in a local quarry, which were pulled up by wooden chutes with cables. Since the blocks were held together with an expensive lime mortar with the addition of cattle blood and egg whites, construction took 13 years.

The building is three-story. The underground tier consisted of three funeral chambers connected by passages. An Orthodox church with an iconostasis and an altar was located on the first above-ground level. The upper tier served as a belfry. The building was crowned with an Orthodox cross.

In 1877, Bilevych's wife Sofia was buried in the tomb, and in 1916 - the builder of the Komendantivka Pyramid, which was consecrated as the Orthodox Church of Saint Sophia, was buried.

In the middle of the 20th century, the graves of the Bilevichs were destroyed, and a fertilizer warehouse was built in the pyramid.

Currently, the service has been restored by the UOC parish of the Moscow Patriarchate, and the church is being repaired. An extension was made to it, which with its modern appearance violates the compositional integrity of the architectural monument.
