Some fragments of epigraphic monuments have preserved: white stone tombstones of the 16th -17th centuries. The most revered relics of the monastery are the holy relics of the wife of Vasily III, the Great Moscow Princess Solomoniya Saburova who was named Sophia in her monastic life and spent 17 years at the monastery. In XVII century she was canonized. The lower church of the main cathedral was consecrated in her honor in 2015.
