New Jerusalem monastery tour

join!

06.10.2018
Did you know that just an hour drive from Moscow can bring you to Jordan River, Gethsemane garden and the temple of the grave of the Lord? Come with us to explore Russian Palestine, a remarkable complex established in the 17th century by Patriarch Nikon.


New Jerusalem is one of the most picturesque and unusual monasteries in Moscow countryside.  Founded in 1656 by Patriarch Nikon as a patriarchal residence in the vicinity of Moscow, it was meant to represent the Holy Land.

Today The New Jerusalem Monastery is a grandiose center of Orthodox pilgrimage and worship and a remarkable architectural and historic complex.

During the tour we’ll visit The Church of the Resurrection of Christ which is  built in the likeness of the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem, and copies of all the main shrines of the Jerusalem temple including Golgotha, the Chapel (chapel) above the Holy Sepulcher, the Anointing Stone.  Nearby is the underground church of Sts. Constantine and Helen. The baroque 18th century interior has been beautifully restored, and a little chapel in the far corner serves water from the holy well.

The tour also features a lovely stroll past the monastery wall to the  park which is meant to represent the garden of Gethsemane.
