After seeing "Christianity", I have a general understanding . When I came to it, the first thing I saw was the cross on its highest roof. According to the information at the door, it has been built many times. From the outside, it is clean, simple and solemn. The noisy sound stopped here abruptly, leaving only silence. Apart from the opening hours, there are relatively few people in the monastery. There are many precious cultural relics and some ancient manuscripts. The significance of coming here to feel and learn about history and culture is greater than to appreciate the building itself and the surrounding environment.
