Previous | Home | Next

This is just insude the monastery front gates. There are donation boxes located around the monastery grounds and one inside the main Church. Most do give donations as they enter or at the Kursk Root Holy Spring. It is amazing how so many people carry .home just as much as they can carry. There is a new blacktop road leading down the side hill but very limited amount of parking. The majority of vistors us the bus from Kursk to reach the monastery. The building behind the donation box is for pirgrims and monks. It had the only bathroom for everyone but they are building a large bathroom at the end of the summer. This was a much needed addition!
