The Church of Boris and Gleb in Kideksha

Kideksha (Russian: ?) is a village (selo) in Seletskoye Rural Settlement, Suzdalsky District of Vladimir Oblast, Russia, located at the confluence of the Kamenka and Nerl Rivers, 4 kilometers (2.5 mi) east of Suzdal.

The settlement was founded before the Church of Boris and Gleb was built in 1152 by Yuri Dolgoruky.

Kideksha used to be a town, but, after having been destroyed during the Mongol invasion of Rus, it degraded to a small village.

Kideksha is a part of the Golden Ring of Russia and, since 1992, is one of Russia's World Heritage Sites (see White Monuments of Vladimir and Suzdal).[1]
