The construction of this nunnery (monastery for nuns) was started in 2002, at the south-east part of Apsheronsk (Yudin’s Street, 4, at the end of the city’s main street, Lenin’s). The monastery is dedicated to the icon with Orans of Mother of God. Epithetical name of the icon is “Inviolable Wall”. You can see the copy of the icon near the entrance to the monastery.
As it is seen in the picture, two years ago construction of the bell tower was not completed yet. But the general concept of the architectural complex, which was designed in the form of a stronghold, was visible pretty well. Now, as fresh pictures from the Internet show, the construction of the monastery seems to be completed.

The walls will stop the nuns from coming out?
Or to prevent horny males from coming in.
Very interesting building with colourful roofs. The blue says stay out (to males)...

All the white walls of this monastery lightens the picture and the combination with the differntly painted roofs is beautiful. The brown background brick building provides an interesting contrast.

Before I read your note, I assumed this was an old building that had been well restored. The style of architecture is from the past, I think, but with less detailing. Your well angled panoramic photo captures it very well, and thanks for your interesting note.

Bom dia Sergiy
Very beautiful construction. Does the words "Inviolable walls" mean that the nuns can't go out of there or it is just a language figure?
As always the pov is perfect and the colors are very nice.
nikkitta (17066) 2011-05-05 7:06
A question, do you always choose the right angle to take the photo?
So the new building keep the old forms?
That is good, I like the nunnery with the white walls and colored domes
The two pavilions on the left are also nice
JFS (32459) 2011-05-05 7:10
What a lovely composition full of colors, sharpness and interesting architecture. thanks Sergiy!

Taken from the best angle, the picture shows well the beautiful architecture of this monastery.
The white facades and walls are very striking but really beautiful under the red dome and the blue roofs.
The red brown bell tower adds more colour to the picture.
Best regards, Paul

I'm amazed to see this building was constructed less than ten years ago!
A fine capture, I notice the fine details and the angle of light that adds a sense of depth to the structure...
And the fine light renders strong vivid colours!

Interesting new nunnery. I see that in the modern version the blue domes are by something like towers. The brick tower will be white too, probably. looks nice , colourful.
leo61 (0) 2011-05-05 12:07
An interesting note and a good shot.Colors,contrast and quality are perfect and I like the composition with this tower at the right side.
ciakgiak (30427) 2011-05-05 12:55
un'architettura molto interessante con decorazioni molto belle e colori sgargianti.
L'effetto è sicuramente bello, peccato per la torre incompleta che spero possa essere completata presto, la luce è magnifica, la qualità eccellente.
Un caro abbraccio

Fantastic architecture and a great composition in this picture, which shows us all this variety of domes and towers, spectacular and very attractive this mixture of colors in the monastery, singular contrast to the tower to the right, if not well or is in construction.
You have captured the image with a great light, which gives you a wealth of great color, great sharpness gives a picture quality to enjoy with so many elements to observe. Well done.
Enjoy a great weekend.

Hi Sergiy, What a beautiful building with it's different types of roof, the cone, the dome & the pyramid, the clear blue sky really allows for some wonderful light to shine through, a well chosen POV, kind regards Wilson.

I like the domes of the building and colors, it's an interesting monastery, different from those we can find in Spain, good details and perspective,
JCG (35129) 2011-05-10 0:54
Indeed we see that the tower is still unfinished, it apparently lacks the painting... Anyway congratulations to all the partners who contributed to the construction of this magnificent monastery, the architecture is beautiful and colorful as usual. A nice photo to show us their work, the sight is tight and efficient light is very beautiful. An interesting composition, thank you Sergiy.
With all my friendships and a very good day
paololg (31448) 2011-05-10 13:49
Ciao dear Sergiy,
the presence of the bricks bell tower mostly underlines the beauty and the vividness of the colors of the convent. An interesting architecturally complex, with the domes turquoise different from the classical style of the orthodox churches, surely more modern. Amazing sharpness, every your photo is a lesson of good quality. Congratulations!
CIao, have a nice Wednesday!
danos (94284) 2011-05-11 0:37

Have a good day,Danos

Интересный репортаж из Апшеронска (помню холодильники оттуда). Отличные цвет и детализация.
Удачной поездки. Я тоже был в похожем турне но 1999. С тех пор обуржуазился ))) и предпочитаю не больше 2 стран за раз посещать. Мозги вскипают.
geoant68 (331) 2011-05-20 1:34
the panoramic view of the nunnery Monastery is superb,with the colours and the light to are captured so great.The different colours of the the domes are well contrasted with the clarity and the sharpness to be so fine.
skippy007 (12510) 2011-05-23 20:10
Hello Sergiy, I also thought this was old church being restored, good to hear from you of so many new churches being built in your part of the world, here it is the opposite with many closing. Beautiful & very traditional, panorama style is very suitable here to accommodate the wide view, splendid colour, good light & excellent clarity. Bravo
jmdias (61342) 2011-09-09 2:52
interesting and beautiful these colors and the old style mixed with the modern one. good pov, light, framing and sharpness. TFS.

This is a wonderful image of the Monastery - I imagine the bell tower on the right of the image will match the rest of the architecture - I shall have to google the monastery to see the completed look.
I like the coloured domes & the gold icon.
Not the sort of look that I am used to seeing of a Monastery therefore I find it a very interesting photo & congratulations on your excellent notes.
