The Tumane Monastery is an ancient shrine, according to legend erected in the second half of the 14th century, as the endowment of the famous Serbian hero, Milos Obilić. According to legend, Obilic inadvertently, while hunting in nearby forests, injured the holy hermit Zosim. In order to scout his wounds, he brought it to his court, but the hermit breathed out, saying: “Leave me here (“tu me mani” – in Serbian), and let me die.” In repentance, Obilic set out to build a church. He did not finish it, because when he reached the roof, a letter from Prince Lazar arrived inviting him to battle on Kosovo Field. The pious people, after the death of Prince Lazar I Milos Obilic in the Kosovo Batlle sovo , completed the monastery and named it Tumane. The relics of Saint Zosim of Tuman, the Sinait Wonderworker, are kept as the largest shrine in the monastery. Here is also an ancient Russian miraculous icon of the Holy Mother of God “Kurskaya”, brought to Tuman in 1936 by Russian monks. In the untouched forest, 800 m from the monastery, there is ananchoress of Sv. Zosima, authentically preserved from the time when he lived in it, as well as the saint’s source. Across from the monastery is a unique porterhouse and small zoo. Because of the miraculous healings at Tumane Monastery, the people call this shrine the Djerdap Ostrog.
