The reburial ceremony took place near the Church of Nativity of the Mother of God (“Cipur Church”), built on the ruins of the old Cetinje Monastery.

The hierarchs’ remains had been exhumed in 1986-1989 under the pretext of carrying out an archaeological research on the territory of the monastery’s necropolis on Cipur – the site of their original burial.
