It is located in a cave on Dajbabe hill (Dajbabska gora), which raises above Zeta valley (Zetska ravnica).

From Podgorica there are no signs to this monastry whatsoever. You get there with narrow suburban road and there is nothing along the road that indicates an important landmark is nearby. Once there a house among hundreds of olive trees emerges, looking quite modern and uninteresting. Inside however there are impressive catacombs that hide a lot of history. A guy working in a shop was polite enough to give us 15-minute history lesson of the place.
This place is the witness of connection and communion between current, antique and medieval epochs in its history. And all of this except of its genuine balcanic hospitable way of life.
