The monastery was built in 1170 -74 as the foundation of Stefan Nemanja. By the legacy, he built the temple in the honor of St. Djordje as gratitude for releasing him from the cave - the prison in which the brothers captured him.

Magnificent church, as well as the entire monastery was built on top of the hill, so to dominate the environment, which gives them a magnificent look. The monastery was once ruined in explosion, but it is renewing thanks to the brotherhood that reassembled a few years ago.....
