In addition, a representative of St. Petersburg Shirap Zhamso Lama also took part in the consecration ceremony. It was to him, as the first rector of a datsan (temple) in the northern capital, that the ceremony was dedicated. 

The religious building was built in St. Petersburg at the beginning of the 20th century on the model of a Buddhist cathedral temple. The Buddhists of Transbaikalia took an active part in the construction. After many years of closure, the temple was handed over to the Buddhist community in 1990. Now the St. Petersburg datsan and its fence are recognized as architectural monuments of federal significance.
