  • The monastery was founded in the 19 century. In 1918 year 200 monks of the monastery were shot. On the territory of the monastery set the devotional cross in memory of this sad event. In the 20th century almost completely destroyed and rebuilt over the past 10 years. Located on the banks of the Yenisei River. Very nice view on the river. In the monastery there is a miraculous icon of the eponymous mountain. The monastery itself pure white, very beautiful.

  • The monastery recently opened after reconstruction and the magnitude of the forces and resources invested are truly impressive. It is twice pleasant to realize that everything is done on the sponsorship funds, individual donations of wealthy citizens. Completely renovated old residential building, where novices and is a couple of small chapels. Centered on the territory built belfry, song bells are posted on the district and very clearly audible on the opposite bank in the area of Zoo Roev ruchei. The Church is novodelom, but built to designs by architect Chernysheva, which in turn built up very many beautiful buildings in the Centre of Krasnoyarsk (the same local lore museum what it is worth). Also on site is a building of historical and cultural centre of the assumption, which after opening is handed over to the management of the State institution (National Center of folk arts). The KICe once a month are held open days, during which you can watch the concert, visit a tour of the monastery grounds, visit the master classes in traditional crafts. There is also an exhibition hall and a library, which operate 7 it per week. Crafts section (work with clay, felting, etc.) operate on a schedule and can take all comers. Absolutely all services of the Centre are free of charge. Even if you nereligiozny or stick to other beliefs, visit this monastery will give you some special pacification and tranquillity:-)
