The first documentation of the monastery Partos is to be found from 1571. In the year of 1656, here was buried Sf. Ierarh Iosif the New, the first main centre of Banat, canonized in 1956, who spent his last three years here. The Austrian map of Banat of 1723 describes the monastery as surrounded by woods. The monastery is very important due to its grandeur and size of the church, constructed between 1750-1753 by Marcu Mutiu.

The austrian commission declared the situation of the monastery in 1771, with six monks. Due to catholicization, the monks went away to orthodox monasteries in 1778. The jewels and books of the church were taken away, being kept by certain institutions even nowadays. By the orthodox bishopry in Serbia, at Varset, got the book of 1529, with the inscription of: This book belongs to the bishop Iosif of Timisoara 1655, who left the bishopry due to his good sense, drawing back to the monastery of Partos, where he lived some years after, passing away after a while to the place where saints sleep.

In 1944, the monastery was reactivated, giving place to nuns, too. During the time of communism, the life of the nuns was interrupted. It was only in the year 2008 when this monastery was refunded, giving place to the nuns again.
