  • It's a wonderful, beautiful place. God-saving corner on earth. Very good and warmest impression and memory. Prayer mood and trepidation at the sight of the monastery, the temple and when applied to the might of the Reverend Father of our Fyodor Sanaksar and the righteous invincible Theodore Ushakov. Events that have been and have taken place in the distant past, here become imperious and your part and life. It's a beautiful monastery. Save the Lord Abbot with the brethres, the sniters and the swirling.

  • Spiritually Strong! Grace feels still on the way! There is a hotel! If you want to work hard, then be aware that the donkey obedience here is firewood that does not end! Only a taxi from Temnikova to the monastery! Bus to the turn and there's about 4 km. Or more to the monastery! In the nearest village there is a house-museum of Admiral Ushakov, which does not work in winter time! I recommend to visit this holy place!
