It’s a beautiful site to behold as there seems to be nothing around but hills and desert. Once in the area, you can take a donkey ride, or a short walk along a graveled path to see this magnificent surprise of a monastery seemingly perched on the side of a mountain. You can almost hear mystical monks chanting. It’s a beautiful site not to be missed If you happen to be near Jerusalem!

Hi! Isn’t this in Palestine???

Does it matter if you’re visiting Jerusalem?
