This tower was built sometime in the late 18 century. But repeats the form of much older buildings of this type. Lower tier have passage, over it rised octagon with roof tent and a flashlight. On the sides of the gate adjacent fragments fence under saddle roof.

The tower was built in Nicolo-Korelsky Monastery (near Arkhangelsk, now – the town Severodvinsk). In 1932 it was brought to Kolomenskoye.
