This is due to the impact of the reform of Patriarch Nikon, who ordered to destroy the existing three-domed churches and was not allowed to build new ones. Vyazma's church is one of the three most beautiful and elegant decorated with corbel arches, glazed tiles and carved details.

The stone Church was build with funds provided by Tsar Alexei Mikhailovich, who was visiting the city with family and surrounded by numerous and even lived in it in 1650, the Church was built in honor of the icon of the Hodegetria Mother of God Smolensk.
