The land of Mordovia since ancient times is famous for its holy places. And although many religious buildings were destroyed or "converted" to concert halls, theaters and palaces of culture during the Soviet era, many sacred places that are regularly visited by Orthodox pilgrims are preserved in Mordovia. The most popular among Orthodox pilgrims are: * John the Theologian Makarov Monastery, known for its unique paintings and revered icons; * Nativity-Theotokos Sanaksar Monastery, founded during the reign of Alexei Mikhailovich Romanov; * St.Barsonofievsky nunnery is one of the most revered places in the village of Pokrovskie Selishchi.
