The Greek monastery was founded by Kyiv Greeks in 1748. Initially, a stone church was built in this place in the Baroque style, and in the second half of the 18th century, residential buildings and a bell tower were built on the territory of the monastery.

After the October Revolution, almost all the buildings of the monastery were destroyed and the temple was closed, and its largest building was used as an exhibition pavilion.
