Ιερά Μονή Χιλανδαρίου Αγίου Όρους - The Holy Monastery of Chilandari, Mount Athos
The main church of the monastery is dedicated to Virgin Mary. It was founded in the early 13th century and was decorated with frescoes in 1320. Unfortunately it was painted over in 1803. Here precious relics of the Church are kept. Saint Simeon reposed in 1200 and was buried in the abbey of the Church. Pieces from the crown of thorns, the reed and the shroud of Christ are stored here.
