I just got into this monastery about 30 minutes before it closed for the day so be sure you check on the times it's open as this caught me by surprise. It was well worth the 30 minutes though. It is an amazing structure and...More

Free walkthrough is nice, and a good break from sun. If you are into churches then definitely give it a visit, but otherwise seems like most other churches I've seen.
