The year 1843 is referred as the date that built the monastery of St. Panteleimon near the village Kazaviti. It is built from Stone Mountain. The monastery is built next to a cave from which it is said the saint passed.
In 1919 came the first nun (her name was Elizabeth) who lived as a hermit in one of two rooms that were in the monastery and she did it her cell. From the 18th century come many believers to pray and be healed by the doctor Saint Panteleimon and every year on July 27, the monastery celebrates with a festival that attracts thousands of devotees.
