Three Hierarchs Church survived after three arson. Its walls inside and outside are sculptured like a real lace, now is restored and cleaned up and so you can admire its unique beauty. Inside you can admire mural fresco and an original chandelier with ostrich egg.

A beautiful, emblematic church that through time has endured various sieges but has managed to survive. It has been since as long as I can remember under reconstruction, now it is finally restructured and is very beautiful indeed.

Besides the merging of cultures such as Persian, Byzantine, Orthodox, and more, the skills of the designer and builders are phenomenal. This should be a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

They say that this 16th century church used to be coverd in gold in the old times. I don't know what happened to the gold, but still the church is unique in its design, with marvellous patterns carved in stone on the outside. Inside, one can listen to an exquisite male choir. A very nice place to visit.
