Gornensky or Gorny monastery (Russian: Горненский или Горний монастырь). Gornensky convent of Russian Ecclesiastical Mission in Jerusalem. Ein-Karem district, 4 km to south-west from Jerusalem. Built by the Russian Orthodox Church at the end of the 19th century, church (originally "Gorny Monastery") was nicknamed "Moskovia" (Arabic for Moscow) by the local Arab villagers, because of its tented roof similarity to other Russian churches. The monastery has churches enclosed within a compound wall.
