The monastery is situated in the valley of the Roussenski Lom River, in a close proximity to the village of Basarbovo and about 10 km from the town of Rousse. It was established during the period of the Second Bulgarian Empire (XII-XIV century), but for the first time its name was mentioned in a Turkish Tax Register in 1431. The only active rock monastery in Bulgaria is an archaeological monument of local importance.
