The monstery was founded in the 12th century and was restored in 1873. At present it functions periodically. The monastery itself is a complex including a three-nef church built in 1876 (pseudo-basilica) and a residential building. In the altar of the church is the holy spring "Jivopriemniy iztochnik".
The monastery is a monument of culture.
