The Monastery history

The Transfiguration of Christ Hermitage is situated in the Village of Ternovka (former the Village of Shulyu). On its territory out of the ground there flows the spring of St. Theodore, near there are preserved the remains of the Middle Ages Ai-Todor Chapel. Still in XIX c. not far from it there was a little village with the same name of Ai-Todor, here originated the River of Aitodorka. These are the lands which were allotted in 1868 to the Inkerman St. Clement Monastery by the order of the Emperor Alexander II. Due to the monks’ efforts here, at the piece of woodland the Temple of St. Theodore was built. It existed to 1925.

In summer of 1996 due to the Archimandrite Augustine’s efforts there started the restoration of the hermitage: the Holy throne was consecrated in the name of St. Venerable Cassian, the Wonder-Worker of Uglich.
