Sedmitsa.Ru reported that, according to the excavation administrator, archaeologists have discovered the structures of the monastery and an industrial installation, in which oil was prepared and grapes were pressed. The excavation took place on the hills to the south of Beit Shemesh, which is situated to the west of Jerusalem.

The church of the monastery has not yet been uncovered, but the discovered inscriptions leave no doubt that the found structures are part of an Orthodox monastery.

Currently the archaeologists have unearthed mosaic floors, agricultural equipment, and many other artifacts.
