Dimitar Monov

Cherepish Monastery got its name from the skulls

The origin of the CM is connected to the history of the medieval “Koritengrad” which existed in the nearby unique natural area “Ritlite”. According to the legend, the CM has acquired its name because of the white colour of the bones of the perished Bulgarian soldiers which were left after the battle of tsar Ivan Shishman with the Ottoman raiders.

What an exciting legend! And thank you so much for this information. I've tried to search Wikipedia about this monastery, but there is absolutely nothing about it (on English).
