Photographer's Note

Tradition says that a sheperd Radu in the time of Alexandru Voda (1568-1577), had a dream that told him he will find an Icon of Mother a God in the middle of a big oak. The sheperd cut that tree and found the icon. He made a small church by the wood of this single tree. And put the beautiful icon inside.

This church became a pilgrimage place because that icon revealed itself as wonderworker icon. Soon in this place have been build monastery that have been called "Dintr-un lemn" (Made-by-one-wood) due of history of the old wooden church.

In the picture is the new church, build by bricks, bigger than the first one. This temple have been build by Matei Basarb, ruler of the Romanian Country in year 1715.
