Alanian has been one of the centers of Christianity in the Caucasus since ancient times. Once there were many Orthodox churches and monasteries. In the inaccessible Ossetian mountains, the monks offered prayers, performed feats of faith, and in case of danger - and defended themselves from enemies. Today, many of them are being restored, but what is no less important, new ones are being established. One of these monasteries is the Alansky Holy Dormition monastery, which appeared in 2000.

Getting into these high unaccessible mountains, and looking at the monastery built in the classical Byzantine style, it is difficult to imagine that the monastery is no more than two decades old. One gets the feeling that he has always been here, towering among the mountain peaks, and under its stone walls the strong river Fiagdon was seething. During its existence, the monastery has become one of the main spiritual centers not only Russia Ossetia, but throughout southern Russia.

This holy monastery has an amazing, albeit not such a long history. It originates at the dawn of a new century and even a millennium. In April 2000 in the city of Beslan, in a former hotel for drivers, the Holy Dormition Monastery was formed, which eventually became the highest mountain monastery in Russia.

At first, the brethren of the monastery were very small in number, to be more precise, it consisted of only two monks, who had previously undergone spiritual training in the Rylsky Nikolsky monastery with the elder Archimandrite Ippolit. The foundation of the monastery in Beslan is connected with the name of the elder. It was he who, shortly before his death, blessed his disciples to go to the Caucasus and establish a new monastery there.

Getting into these high inaccessible mountains, and looking at the monastery, built in the classical Byzantine style, it is difficult to imagine that the monastery is no more than two decades old. 

The Cathedral of the Holy Great Martyr Barbara was transferred to the Assumption Monastery. After a while, the monastery moved to a new place, fascinating with its pristine beauty and, in combination with the monastery complex and its gray walls, making an indelible impression. As it has already become clear, this place is the Kurtat Gorge. Read this article of Church on the Blood of Yekaterinburg City

It was not chosen by chance: a church in the name of the Holy Wives of the Myrrhbearers was built here in the century before last, restored today by the efforts of the brethren. Also on the territory of the monastery was built a fraternal building, and a new spacious temple in the name of the Iberain Icon of the Mother of God.

Over time, the monastery became one of the main spiritual centers not only of the whole of Ossetia, but also of the south of Russia, along with the Alan women's monastery. Here, not far from the walls of the monastery, literally a few kilometers away is the main shrine of Ossetia - a copy of the icon of the Iveron Mother of God, which was donated by the holy Queen Tamara. During the difficult years of World War II, the image was lost and, according to legend, when all Orthodox monasteries in Alanya are restored, the icon will be regained.

The monastery Church of the Iveron Icon of the Mother of God was built in the Byzantine style, such monasteries and temples can be found throughout the vast territory of the former Empire of the Romans: from Serbia to Turkey, and of course, in the Caucasus. Built of gray stone, with bright red tiled roofs, the monastery complex looks unusually organically against the backdrop of powerful gray-green mountains and a thin winding ribbon of the fast mountain river Fiagdon.
