In Ukraine cave cells-monasteries date back to the times of Yaroslav the Wise. In the second half of the 13 th century monks, the preachers of Christianity, came to the Maniavski Mountains. They founded a monastery here. The walls of the monastery are peculiar pages of its history, which is rich in legends and traditional stories. Almost every icon, every stone has its prehistory, its magic and miraculous power. The tower-treasury, the Church of St. Borys and St. Glib, the underground Church of Archangel Michael are kept on the territory of the Monastery. There is a wonder-working icon of God’s Mother, painted in the 18th century on the Mount of Aphon, in the Cathedral of Exaltation of the Cross.
There is a Blessed Stone on the distance of 830 m from the Monastery. Healing water runs out of it. The Maniavsky Cell is situated in the village of Maniava, Bohorodchany District, now it is the active Orthodox Monastery.
