“Religion”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

Great to see christian artifcts and building still being maintained in a Muslim part of the country.The icons themselves are very interesting and the workmanship on some of them makes one reflect on times past!

“not worth it”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

The converted church was an interesting building, but the Icons were all of a poor standard, mostly 19th Century and not worth the visit.

“Closed?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

Appeared to have been closed for quite some time. Maybe I should have tried to enter through the hotel next door? There was grafitti on the walls outside and the church was not maintained on the outside.

“Worth a visit if you're passing.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012

Not expensive, worth a look if you're passing, don't make a special journey unless you are interested in religious icons. Probably would not interest children or teenagers.
