The Patriarchate of Jerusalem  – 8/11/17

In September 2017, the refurbishment of the Holy Monastery of Saints Joachim and Anna took place. The monastery is near St. Stephen’s gate. The Hegoumen of the Holy Monastery Archimandrite Meletios from Jerusalem undertook and funded this project with an additional help from noble pilgrims’ donations.

The restoration included the Holy Church and the underground floors, where the shrines of St. Anna’s house and of the Nativity of Theotokos lie.
