Description of the Sretensky Monastery

Sretensky Monastery is a women's Russian Orthodox monastery in Gorokhovets. Upon its construction in the 17th century (1658) it became one of the most prominent features in Gorokhovets. Its 35 meter high Bell Tower stands out among other buildings. Original buildings of the monastery were wooden. In 1678 two wooden churches were added to this religious complex including warm winter Sergievskaya Church and cold summer Sretenskaya Church. In the last decades of the 17th century wooden structures of Sretensky Monastery were replaced by stone buildings. Local merchant Semen Efimovich Ershov donated money to construct the main cathedral of Sretensky Monastery.

Sretensky Monastery in Gorokhovets was closed when Soviets came to power. It was closed until early 1990's when abbey was reopened as an Eastern Orthodox monastery.
