A Siberian man has built an Orthodox Church out of snow so his village will have a place to worship. Although the amazing snow and ice structure is an incredible sight just to look at, it also serves a more practical purpose. This man was inspired to build the snow church because his small Siberian village did not have a church of its own and most people in the village cannot travel to the nearest city. The snow church includes a 106-square foot prayer space, as well as an altar, various icons, and a copy of the New Testament. It also has a cross on top, making the entire building over 15 feet tall. The village of Sosnovka currently has average temperatures of nine below zero, so the snow structure is sure to last for some time.
