The '''Holy Dormition Convent on Zilant Hill''' was initially founded as a [[monk|male]] [[monastery]] in a low lying area in Kazan, Russia. Later, the monastery moved from this site to the high ground of Zilant Hill to avoid flooding at the original site. The monastery complex was used for various church related purposes before being almost completely destroyed during the Soviet period. After its return by the government to the [[Diocese of Kazan]] in 1998, it has been restored as a monastery for women.
