The sacred place in Đunis village was accidentally discovered on the 24th of July 1898 when Milojka Jocic, the girl from the village of Djunis who tried to get some water from the will encountered the Holy Virgin. The Holy Virgin ordered the girl to construct church on this very place. This event was recorded by the assistance of Milojka’s brother and was printed in 1936. Locals understood well message of Milojka’s brother and built the small wooden chapel on the place of encounter. Soon after that the church-log was several times destroyed and rebuilt to experience the modest church built of bricks on this place.

By donations from locals and people living abroad here was built the large church in the eighties of the 20th century. Several books from the 19th century are kept in the Monastery and the treasury is every day gifted by faithful people who consider it one of the leading spiritual centers and pilgrimages in Serbia. One large stone of irregular shape is specially interesting which is kept in the Monastery. According to the legend this stone was thrown by the Holy Virgin on the encounter with Milojka ordering church dedicated to her to be built on the place where stone falls. Djunis Monastery became one of the most important sacral places in Serbia which is every October on the day of the Shroud of the Holy Virgin visited by several thousands of faithful people who gather here to attend the whole-night Virgil and the morning Liturgy.
