Must visit if you are in the region. Dating as early as 13 century survived the test of many turbulent eras.

Here, lightness and freshness are felt, as if something is getting easier and you feel relaxed and joyful. At the same time, you feel the deep and still un-revealed history of the human spirit and soul. An ancient mystery is felt in the air .

I loved the place. There were hardly any people and it truly felt like a place where God lived unlike most of the commercialized monasteries tourists visit. The nature around is truly amazing.
