Klostera teritorija nakts laikā (aptuveni no 22:00 līdz 6:00) tiek slēgta. Lūdzu apmeklēt klosteri gaišajā diennakts laika.
Klostera teritorija sievietes drīkst atrasties tikai sieviešu apģērbā (bikses ir aizliegtas) un ar galvassegu, savukārt vīrieši -garajās biksēs (šorti ir aizliegti). Paldies par sapratni.
Klostera apbūve sākta veidot 1897. gada pēc Mansurovu ģimenes iniciatīvas. Klosteri var apskatīt Kristus apskaidrošanas pareizticīgo baznīcu, Jana Trepnieka pareizticīgo baznīcu un kapelu. Klosteri pašlaik dzīvo apmēram 60 māsas. Sīkāka informācija šeit.

Lai atrastu slēpni, Jums jāatrod atbildes uz šādiem jautājumiem:
A- Cik durvju ir ēkas Nr 12 fasādē? Skaitiet uzmanīgi.
B- Cik zeltītu krustu klostera teritorija ir uz jumtiem un kupoliem? (jumta remonta laikā vienu noņēma un izskatās, ka atpakaļ neliks, pieskaitām to klāt)
C- Cik krūzīšu pakaramo ir pie akas? (pieskaitām klāt arī divus pazudušos)
D- Cik zvanu ir nojumītē pie ēkas Nr 12?

Gala koordinātes iegūstam šādi: N56 43.(100*A-BC+10*D); E023 41.(BC*8+10*C-8*D-10)
