“Recommended”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

To get to the crypt, you need to go through a passageway to the left of the monastery building, through a small garden-like area and the will be a door for the crypt entrance. It was quite an interesting place, and where else do you get to see genuine mummies?! There is a small fee to get in, and this gets you a small booklet describing all of the exhibits. If you do happen to turn up with large bags, ie. if you're backpacking, there is a small 'unofficial' space to store your bags behind the reception desk; you don't want to be carrying those around the exhibit. The monastery itself, above ground, was unavailable at the time so we were not able to see this.

“Fascinating and bizarre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

It's a strange thing as a tourist attraction. Very interesting ad an insight into local history as well as preservation. It's also cool down there in the summer heat!
