The monastery is in the western part of the Athos peninsula and its Katholikon (main Chusch) is dedicated to the Presentation of Christ in the Temple. Its feast day is celebrated on 2 February. (Since the monastic community of Mount Athos observes the Julian Calendar, which is currently 13 days behind the civil calendar, 2 February on the Julian Calendar falls on 15 February of the modern Gregorian Calendar.)
The founder of monastery was Saint Paul of Xeropotamou.
The monastery ranks fourteenth in the hierarchy of the Athonite monasteries. The library contains 494 manuscripts, and over 12,000 printed books.
