The monastery was built in XVI century near Bavanište, deep in the forest so it would stay away from the eyes of the Ottoman Turks. In 1716. it was burned and devastated together with the village. It was rebuilt in 1776. then burned in 1788. again, and in 1790. a new monastery was built. The construction was continued in the XIX century and the monastery was renovated at the end of the XX century and at the begining of XXI century until present.
