The Museum of Kykkos Monastery forms an inseparable part of the monastery complex, housing an invaluable assortment of icons, consecrated vessels, manuscripts, and Cypriot antiquities. This Monastery stands out as the wealthiest and most opulent among all of Cyprus' monasteries, majestically perched on a mountain peak at an elevation of 1,318 meters to the northwest of Troodos.

Devoted to Panagia, also known as the Virgin Mary, the monastery proudly exhibits one of the three icons attributed to Agios Loukas, or Apostle Luke, the Evangelist. Encased in an ornate shrine crafted from tortoise shell and mother-of-pearl, this precious icon, adorned with silver gilt, takes center stage before the iconostasis
