Manastirska crkva je posvećena sv. Nikoli. Po predanju, manastir je zadužbina članova despotske porodice Branković, međutim, prvi pouzdan pomen manastira potiče iz 1541. Sadašnja crkva sagrađena je 1575/76, prilozima grupe ktitora, a posebno Lacka i Marka Jovšića iz Gornjeg Kovina. Uz crkvu, prizidan je 1758. visoki, barokni zvonik.
Četvorostrani manastirski konaci sagrađeni su između 1728. i 1771. Manastirska crkva je oslikana freskama. Freske u naosu nastale su 1608, a u priprati 1654.
Stari ikonostas zamenjen je baroknim koji je slikao Teodor Kračun 1776. U Drugom svetskom ratu, manastirski kompleks teško je stradao. Delovi ikonostasa su sačuvani, a manastirski kompleks obnovljen.

The monastery church is dedicated to St. Nicholas. Accordiing to tradition, the monastery was built by the Despots of the Brankovic family. The first reliable mention of the monastery is dated 1641. The present church was built in 1576 by the contribution of a group of benefactors, particularty by Lacko and Marko Jovsic, citizens of Gornji Kovin. The church of Novo Hopovo is one of the largets and architecturally most importart religious buldings of its time. The Monastery complex underwent some major changes during the 18th century under the influence of the Baroque, when the bell-tower was added to the church and the monks's quarters were built around it.
In the second half of the 18th century, the old iconostasis was replaced by a high altar partition carved by Paul and Anton Rezner. The icons on this iconostasis were painted by Teodor Kracun in 1776. During World War II, the monastery was torn down, the Iconostasis dismantled and damaged, while the mobile furniturewas taken away. The monastery has been renovated as a whole, except the reconstruction of the bell-tower.
