What a beautiful church. In the middle of sleeping area, inside of the rocky hill there is a round church. So pure, simple and elegant!

This was the no 1 tourist spot on our list. Amazing how they carved it out of a solid rock and produced this nice and solemn place. You get inside for a fee..Beautiful place..
