The Sentinsky istoriko-architectural complex includes temple century, and also the constructions of the Spaso-Preobrazhenskiy female monastery created in the end of XIX - the beginning of XX century. On a slope of the same mountain monastic constructions are located also. Time of construction of a temple was until recently object of discussions. Only more recently scientists-archeologists managed to find out under a layer of frescos an inscription in the Greek language, testifying that the temple has been constructed in April of 967.
