Макариев-Решемский женский монастырь
Kineshma District, Reshma Village, Volzhskaya Street, 10
It is believed that the monastery was founded by St. Macarius of Zheltovodsk and Unzhenskiy in the XIV century. His relics are still kept in the monastery. Among pilgrims they are considered an important revered relic.
The monk Makariy built a modest wooden church under the mountain on the Volga riverbank in honor of the Holy Life-Giving Trinity. Now an impressive architectural ensemble appears in front of tourists: the fortified walls, the watch towers and massive gates. The walls are both nuns' cells and administrative offices.
The entrance passes through the gate and at the same time through the gate Church in honor of the Archangel Michael, where the ancient icon of the same name is kept.
Makariev-Reshemsky convent is a monument of Russian architecture and clergy, which is of special importance in the secular life of parishioners.
