Intercession Monastery (Moscow)

Intercession (Pokrovsky) Monastery (Покровский монастырь) is a Russian Orthodox convent situated in Moscow, in the neighbourhood of Taganka. It has been known since 1635 and long remained a poor monastic abode outside the city proper, neighbouring a large cemetery for commoners. It was a filial monastery of the Zaikonospassky Monastery between 1680 and 1731.

Much of the monastery is Neoclassical in design and dates from the early 19th century. The five-domed katholikon was erected in the mid-1850s to Mikhail Bykovsky's Byzantine Revival designs. It is dedicated to the Renewal of the Temple of the Resurrection in Jerusalem.

The Soviets disbanded the brethren and had some of the walls torn down. The monastery was revived in 1994 as a stauropegic nunnery. It derives much of its popularity and income from the relics of St. Matrona of Moscow, a very popular saint.

Волшебно красивая территория, очень и очень ухоженная, даже не верится, что мы не только в Москве, а вообще в России. Уютно, тихо. И Восхитительная трапезная на территории!

Редкое место с положительной энергетикой в Москве. Особенно сильно это ощущается внутри храма с мощами. Рекомендую посещать хотя бы раз в месяц - положительно скажется на вашем духовном здоровье.

Место,куда хочется возвращаться снова и снова.Чтобы избежать многочасовых очередей надо приходить с 19:00 до 20:00.Но так поздно уже не сможете купить бутылочку для святой воды,приносите с собой.
