The Bešenovo Monastery (Serbian: Манастир Бешеново / Manastir Bešenovo, [bɛʃɛ̌nɔʋɔ]) was a Serb Orthodox monastery on the Fruška Gora mountain in the northern Serbian province of Vojvodina. It was located by the Čikoš stream, in the area of the Bešenovački Prnjavor village. During the World War II, monastery was destroyed in bombing, and it hasn't been rebuilt since.
According to legend, the monastery of Bešenovo was founded by Serbian King Stefan Dragutin at the end of the 13th century. The earliest historical records about the monastery date back to 1545, in the Turkish population list. Bešenovo monastery was destroyed in a bombing in 1944, and after World War II its remains have been demolished and stolen. It hasn't been rebuilt since. Before the demolition, a monastery complex consisted of a church, storey quarters on three sides of a church and sheds.
Following the reconstruction of the all Monasteries of Fruška Gora, reconstruction of Bešenovo was announced.
