Icon of the Mother of God of Okonsk


Commemorated on July 30

The Okonsk Icon of the Mother of God, by tradition, was received by Georgian Emperor Vakhtang IV from Jerusalem and initially it was at the Gaenat Monastery in Georgia.

The Georgian emperor's son, George Alexandrovich, transferred the holy icon to the cathedral church of the village of Lyskov, Nizhegorod.
