this is a part of pilgrimage program for eastern orthodox christians, as well as a lot of shiaa visitors (surprisingly).
the monastery has an old part (2000 years old), and the added on outer new part..make sure to find the old part where the saint's grave is.
this is where Saint Takla spent the rest of her days in the mountain cave after escaping the roman soldiers.
make sure to drink from the cold holy water from the cave.
