Photographer's Note

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.
