  • The monastery was founded in 17 century on the site of the cemetery of the homeless. In the 18 century built church and Bell Tower. In 1994 year, Pokrovsky monastery was returned to the Russian Orthodox Church as the women's cloister. May 2, 1998 year the relics of the blessed old women Matrons were solemnly transferred to the Pokrovsky monastery and repose in cancer. Look at the monastery territory there. But I think basically people come to venerate the relics of St. Matrona. There is a hotel for visiting. It is possible to reach by bus, trolley, but you can walk from the Metro station Proletarskaya (Peasant outpost).

  • I go here often and I see a lot of visitors, for them it's not so convenient as for Muscovites, so review for them. Taganskaya yellow twigs and two stops on a trolley or on foot-go 7 minutes. People to Matrone very much in lent and holidays. In everyday life, especially in the morning hours of 8, little people, and sometimes for 15 minutes pass. For some it is unclear where people stand and tradition have undertaken the task to the relics, and the icon on the street, adjacent to the wall where power lie. Better, it seems to me that one turn to defend, but read akathist. To relics are short, long stand will not, therefore, pray in the queue rather than enter a secular or just talk kostopromyvnuju-MATUSHKA Matron when life has all, without judging, and therefore you don't judge, come here. But the icon on the street, where a private queue, you can kiss and stand as you need. Can choose. Often offer to work for the glory of God from hours-petals and leaves is necessary poubirat in the temple and on the street, flower handle, read the names of the cast notes-who as luck. Very worthy endeavor, and just to correct fate-worked on feature, repented, now train at Lord's, to make it close. Flowers-specific theme. Accepted Matrone carry flowers because she loved them. But, rather, the flowers bear to their dedicated power Matrons, and then distribute them to people-as oil consecrated on relics. So after the relics prilozhites', don't forget to come up for a flower. Candles and notes can be submitted before the temple, where power-walk inside the Church still stand 15 minutes during this time have time. In the big Cathedral of the usually huge queues on svaechnye boxes. From household details convenient source-indoor, so Frost isn't scary. Toilet-a separate House on the monastery grounds. The refectory usually turn Darlin is not fast selection of large, not all lean, but you can safely take a break though, if large and warm up when cold.
