TIME : 2016/2/19 0:05:09

This large monastery standing at the turn to Botik Museum (2.5km south of the centre) was founded in the 14th century, though the oldest buildings today are the 17th-century gates, gate-church and belfry. The centrepiece is the Assumption Cathedral , with its beautiful carved iconostasis. The other buildings hold art and history exhibits.
