Assumption Cathedral was built by Greek Catholics, who in the early eighteenth century they built their first wooden church, and in 1771 the two churches and stone. After 100 years becoming inadequate, in 1909 the construction of the present church begins.

Funded largely by Alexander Breban canon (church founded commemorative plates already gone) and finished in 1911 after 20 years it becomes Episcopal cathedral. The martyr Greek-Catholic Bishop, Dr. Alexandru Rusu, was installed here.

n 1948, suddenly banning Greek Catholic religion and the church is orthodox and is currently Orthodox cathedral dedicated to the Assumption. The interior mural painting was done by Gheorghe Busuioc from Bucharest.

The iconostasis was created by Keresztesi Karoly from Tasnad, and the icons by Traian Bilțiu-Dăncuș. After 1989 the Greek Catholic Church began the actions to claim the cathedral. Pros and cons, appeals, lawsuits, even 2012 has not yet made a resolution in this case.
