The term temple appears in both the Greek and Slavic traditions. The Greek term for "temple" (ναός) is commonly applied to larger churches. The [[Temple of Saint Sava]] in Belgrade, Serbia is an example. In Russian, and similarly in other East Slavic languages, the term for "temple" (khram (Храм)), is used to refer to the church building as a Temple of God (Khram Bozhy). The words
"church " and "temple " are used interchangeably; however, the term “church” (derived from the Greek : εκκλησία) is far more common in English, while in Russian, the more common word for “church” is ‘‘tserkov’‘.
