|This icon was shot by the Bolsheviks and is preserved in this fashion to |
remind future generations of what happened then.
|New Martyrs of Mgarsk Monastery - see the Skete pictures|
below to see a memorial to them.
In addition to the monastery proper there is a skete on the far east of the property. Pictures from the skete are below. The cemetery of the new brotherhood is here. The cemetery of the original brotherhood from the 18th century and onward was completely destroyed by the Communists. The brotherhood more or less knows where it is, and they do not farm that area (it is a field now), but no one really knows for sure.
