Affiliate of Rīga St. Trinity Sergius Female Monastery in Valgunde

The construction of Orthodox monastery was initiated in 1897, when six sisters arrived from the monastery in Rīga and settled down in a small wooden house. Afterwards they built one church with the assistance of Kalnciems factory workers, then the second church in 1909. The monastery survived World War I and World War II, but many fallen soldiers were buried in the territory of the monastery, marked by old crosses at their burial places.

The territory of the monastery contains Jesus Christ's Transfiguration Orthodox Church, Jānis Trepnieks Orthodox church and the chapel with significant collection of icons. Visitors can get an insight into the life of sisters having a look around the monastery buildings. Currently approximately 60 sisters live in the monastery.
