  • In the Temple of the Monastery kept icon of Kazan Mother of God. For believers the chance to see and bow to her will be goodness.

  • When I went to explore it was my first point to see. Here is the most revered shrine of Russian nation - Our Lady of Kazan Ikon. 
  • Long dreamed of visiting the location independence of Kazan icon of the mother of God. The monastery is within walking distance of the Kazan Kremlin, East of Kremlin mountains. In the 2004-2005 biennium. the monastery was returned and restored the great Temple of Exaltation. July 21, 2005 Patriarch Alexy II handed over the Kazan diocese returned as Pope the so-called Vatican list of Kazan icon of the mother of God. This list was placed exactly in Holy Cross Church. By definition professionals, it was written in Russia in the late 17th or the 1-St half of the 18th century (it is unknown exactly which monastery he was travelling abroad fell after the Revolution). And in style, and it can never be the original Kazan icon, which was obretjon in the year 1579. The original disappeared in the year 1904 he was kidnapped from the convent of our Lady of Kazan Cathedral thief Chaikin. The attacker was caught, but said during the investigation that has chopped up and burned in the oven icon, because it was just precious. However, the Vatican list is revered and considered a miraculous, and his presence at the scene of the independence of Kazan icon seems logical. Come to it every day hundreds, and in some days and thousands of pilgrims from all over Russia and abroad. The place itself gaining icons show managed to only from the Windows of Holy Cross Church, since the construction of the big temple.
