The Savior monastery, one of the most ancient in Russia, was first chronicled in 1096, when Oleg of Chernigov besieged it and killed Vladimir Monomakh's son Izyaslav, who is buried there.  In 1552, the monastery was visited by Ivan the Terrible who commissioned a stone cathedral, which was followed by other churches.  The site was under site was under construction when I was there.

See Murom for references.

When I visited the monastery was undergoing restoration. There was construction everywhere.
