Photographer's Note

Monastery was, according to tradition, founded by king Dragutin Nemanjić, and dedicated to the Intercession of the Theotokos. What is significant to the monastery church is that it was built without any influence of the baroque style, so it stands as a classical example of Serbian-Byzantine architecture. The Monastery has been renovated several times, and the church itself never had a bell tower. One exists today, and it is right beside the church, built of wooden beams and covered with a tin roof. The church suffered no damages during the Second World War, though the dormitories had been burnt.
