Daniel developed great respect and popularity among the Russian people of his principality through his manner of meekness, humility, and peacefulness while taking care of both the populace and the city.
About 1282, Daniel established the first monastery in the city at a site about five miles from the Kremlin at the location of the wooden [[church]] of St. Daniel-Stylite. This site became the [[St. Daniel Monastery (Moscow)|Monastery of St. Daniel]].
In March 1303, Prince Daniel died at the age of 42. Before he died he had become a [[monk]] and specified in his will that he be buried in the cemetery of the monastery. Many miracles, including healing people, have occurred over his grave.
