normal_xelandari-aeros1.jpgThe cell of All Saints is located in Jovanitsa, the area known for its rigour. It is a deserted cell. It had been founded by hieromonk Moses on the blessing of Hilandar on the land belonging to the monastery. The deserted area was occupied by the monks-hermits. Hieromonk Moses with hard work and diligence built there a cell. However on March 9 1908 he was brutally killed by robbers.


Years had passed since dreadful crime shocked the the Sacred Mountain. Nowadays pious and benign monks often tell stories about the cell which suffered from the evil deed. Now it possesses the katholikon dedicated to St. Simon and Savva of Serbiaa and a comfortable pier.
