About monastery Nimnik


There is a legend bound with the name of the monastery.

The story is about a girl that lived in the time of Turkish empire, some Turkish soldiers asked her to show them the path to the monastery but she declined. She knew that the Turkish soldiers are looking for the monastery to burn it to the ground.

When the Turkish soldiers asked the girl where is the location of the monastery, she replied "niscu nimnik" (in translate - "I don't know nothing"), the Turks replied with violence and killed the girl.

To this day on her grave is standing one of two chapels named "Svetinja".

Monastery was build by some man names Bogosav, who by a story was a duke from prince Lazar. The opinion is that Bogosav was the man mentioned in the folk song "Knez Bogosav i Starina Novak".
