The history of orthodoxy in Jekabpils starts from 16 century, when many rafters from Russia travelled by river Daugava. Around the place of nowadays orthodoxal monastery from 1670 till 1675 was built first wooden church of the Holy Ghost and behind it also a monastery. Around the territory they built a deep wall bed with portholes, which you can see still today. After fire in the town, in 1887 at the same place was built Byzantine style masonry church with five cupolas and belfry next to the church.

In the church there is a famous ikon, so now this place is an aim of Latvia’s orthodoxals pilgrimage.
Nowadays there is a male Jekabpils monastery of the Holy Ghost. There are living 10 monks, who helps to Jekabpils deprived and unemployed people. They are working in their household and joinery. There is a libary, Sunday’s school, seminary for belief lesson teachers and a Soup kitchen.
In the church are Russian and Latvian parishes. Every first Sunday of month – Mass in Latvian (than you have a possibility to visit the territoty for sure!)

Next to the church of the Holy Ghost – Saint Nicola’s Thaumaturge’s church (white coloured). It’s an only church in Latvia which is such a miniature, built in 1774 in Gothic style. It has been a place for Latvian-speaking orthodoxals for many years.

The monastery’s territory is a historical center of Jekabpils.
