    Absolutely beautiful monastery. Well worth seeing

    November 6, 2018

    The package purchased was misleading. There was no guide and we were only given 1.5 hours to observe the area thus we spent more time driving than actually visiting the site. We were told we would have 8 hours overall and this did not happen.
