“Schimbarea la Faţă” (The Transfiguration) Monastery of Cheile Turzii

In Cheile Turzii area in the 16th a century monastic fireplace is attestated. In 1601, the head of Michael the Brave (1595-1601) is brought to the monastery where a liturgy of lamentations is officiated.

General Bucow saves the monastery of destruction as a result of an agreement that the monks ensured the children’s schooling from nearby villages.

In the modern era, after 1997, in that area the tradition of monastic life was recommenced by erecting a new monastery for monks.
