The glory of the holy man quickly spread around, and local residents began to come to him. Some stayed here, devoting themselves to the service of God. Soon on the shore of the lake there was a chapel, but construction of the monastery began after Filaret 's death. At first the abode was wooden, stone it became at the turn of the 17th and 18th centuries.

The 60-meter bell tower makes the temple, called the "Raif candle," the most recognizable.
