Cross erected on 2100 meter peak in Tuva

On one little accessible mountain peak near Lake Sut-Hol in the southern Siberian republic of Tuva, His Eminence Archbishop Jonathan of Abakan and Kyzyl, along with a group of clergymen and laypeople, raised and consecrated a cross, reports the  website of the Abakan-Kyzyl diocese.

"Jesus Christ, King of Glory," reads the inscription in the Tuva language.

Tuva's main religions are Buddhism, Orthodox Christianity, and shamanism.
