Monastery Dajbabe

Monastery Dajbabe is the orthodox monastery dedicated to the Assumption of the Virgin and is located not far from Podgorica, near the village it was named after.

It was established in 1897, and the natural shape of the cave was used as the place for church. Later, the cave was expanded to obtain the basis form of the church, with extra chapels.

The only visible part of the church is out of the cave and it is a large porch with two bell towers. The interior of the monastery was painted by its founder, monk Simeon Popovic who adapted the scenes to the natural shape of the rock and he worked on its interior until his death in 1941.
