The monastery Banja is dedicated to St Nicholas of Dabar and it is situated in the town Pribojska Banja. It is not known when it was founded, but it is certain that it existed in the 12th century.

 

 

In 1220 it became the centre of Dabar Archbishopric and therefore it used to be called St Nicholas of Dabar. The importance of the monastery is testified by the graves of the most prominent noble families from the period of reign of Emperors Dušan and Uroš.

 

 

The present church was built by King Stefan Dečanski in 1329. It underwent major reconstruction in 1570 due to Turkish demolition. The monastery was named after mineral springs which have been used in monastery since ancient times.

 

Two layers of frescoes have been preserved in the nave and the altar area. Older dating from 14th and younger from 16th century. Recently the monastery treasury has been opened and in 2007 from the Museum of Serbian Orthodox Church were returned treasury artifacts dating from 15th and 17 century.
