This is a lovely little Anglican church which is built into the side of a small hill and therefore the temperature is about 24 degrees Celsius all year.

You just have to see it. It's hard to describe. We were quite amazed at the workmanship. We went with Gennadiy from Adventure Tours.

What a beautiful under ground Church, if you are going to visit this make sure you go with Rudi as he explains in detail how it was built and all of its history.
