Dalhauti Monastery


The traveler who proposes to reach Dahlutei would be fully rewarded even if he had the chance to worship the miracle-working icon of the Mother of God. But the monastery has many other gifts to reward pilgrims. The two churches, one of the walls and the other of the wood, both historical monuments; The holy relics of the Holy Martyr Talaleus and St. Ignatius the New of Constantinople, the museum collection of cult objects and old icons, coming from the third church, which is today ruined after the earthquake of 1977.
     The courtyard of the monastery full of flowers, the fresh air, the rustle of the forest surrounding the monastery, the song of the birds, the new constructions in harmony with the old cells, all give the whole ensemble a heavenly atmosphere. But above all, what makes most visitors come back here whenever they have the opportunity, or whenever they have to go through a balance of life, is the piety floating in everything that surrounds you in this monastery, the feeling of silence and spiritual cleansing that anyone walks on the gate of the monastery as if it is simply present in this holy place where St. Basil of Poiana Marului has lived in other times.
     At the end of a picturesque road through the Dâlhăuţi Codes, after a beautiful sculptured wooden knot on the right, access to the monastery takes place through a stately bell tower, which is part of all the constructions built after 1990.
     The monastery is built on the fairly steep coast of a hill, so that up to the entrance and then up to the two churches ascend the stone steps and the slope road, reminding you of access to a true medieval fortress. After passing under the painted arcade of entrance you will encounter a green meadow, full of flowers and trees, surrounded by all the sides of the monastery's cellars and administrative buildings.
     The wall church, dedicated to the "Spring of Healing", was erected between 14661-1468, but in 1829 it was rebuilt from the ground. It has the shape of a ship, with strong, uprooted groundbreaks. The church does not have a tower and is covered with blackboard. It is illuminated by two narrow windows in the nave, on the southern and northern walls.
     The wooden church "St. Archangels Mihail and Gavril", built according to the scribe in 1810, is placed on a stone foundation and has the shape of a cross.
