The convent was established to mark the death of pious Father John of Kronshtadt, in his time (the latter part of the nineteenth century) one of the one of the most honored holy men in Russia. He is buried in a tomb located in the lower floor. The convent complex is Byzantine in style. Sanctified in 1901, the convent's activities were curtailed by the anti-religious activity of the Bolsheviks. The building itself survived however, and the convent is now under the special patronage of the Patriarch (Orthodox church leader).
