  • this is one of the 2 nunneries in the area so it definitely deserves a visit. All other monasteries have moncs. clean, garden with flowers, nice view  more »
  • If this monastery was by itself somewhere I'm sure we would have rated it higher, but it just isn't quite as exciting as some of the other monasteries.  more »
