The Holy Protection Іtauropegic convent is known not only throughout Moscow, but throughout Russia, as well as beyond its borders. The reason why he is so famous is the relics of the holy blessed eldress Matrona, or as people who come to her affectionately call her, Matronushki. Historically, the monastery was male, it became female only in our days. The necropolis on the territory of the monastery was the largest necropolis in Moscow; now Tagansky Park has been laid out in its place. The monastery has two churches: in honor of the Protection of the Most Holy Theotokos and in honor of the Resurrection of the Word. The third temple was recently completed – in honor of Peter and Fevronia of Murom. The monastery courtyard is located in the Ramensky district. In addition to the relics of Blessed Matrona, the monastery houses a particularly revered icon of the Mother of God “Seeking the Lost”.
