The '''Chudov Monastery''' (Russian: Чу́дов монасты́рь) -more formally known as '''Alexis' Archangel Michael Monastery''')-, located in Moscow, Russia, was destroyed during the Soviet times. The [[monastery]] was closely associated with the rulers of Moscow and was the [[baptism]]al place for Russian royal children. The monastery was dedicated to the [[miracle]] (''chudo'' in Russian) of the [[Archangel Michael]] at Chonae (Colossae) and is often referred to as the '''Monastery of Miracles'''. [[September 19]] is the monastery's [[feast]] day.
