The monastery has become especially famous in the last five years, as the Mother of God herself has appeared to many and invited them to visit her monastery and also miraculously healed many suffered from eye problems. It is home to a healing spring and wonderworking icon of the Theotokos.

May Mother Mariam’s memory be eternal!
