Monastery Of The Holy Cross

Monastery Of The Holy Cross

The monastery was founded in the early Byzantine era and is dedicated to Cross. By tradition, on the territory of the monastery has grown tree, which was produced by the cross of Christ.


History of the Cross tree starts from the time of the patriarch Abraham and linked the phenomenon to him the Holy Trinity in the form of three angels.

Tradition recalls that angels came to Sodom, but Abraham left three of their cans. After the sin of incest, Lot came to these places beg forgiveness. He asked Abraham for advice as expiate his sin.

Abraham gave Lot three cans vacated by angels, advised to put them into the land around Jerusalem and to irrigate their water from the Jordan River.

If the cans blooms - it would mean that God gave him forgiveness. Lot follow the advice of Abraham and cans bloom and become a triple tree - cedar, pine and cypress at the same time. According to tradition, a cross for the crucifixion of Jesus was made of the tree.
