Forest-the wilderness protection zone where inhabited by different animals, such as small deer q-q, which are the symbol of Rhodes and grow rare orchids. At the very top of the wooded mountains worth inconspicuous, small, pure white Temple. From the simplicity of a feeling of peacefulness and thought uskromnjajutsja. People here are rare, and only once a year-2 August, the day of the Prophet Elijah, a church service is held. There is an opportunity to put candles and pray. Say, before there lived a hermit monk who followed the church until his death. The Greeks love to get married in this inconspicuous Temple because it brings family happiness. The mountain opens with magnificent views of the Aegean Sea and the surrounding area. Near the temple there is a TOCSIN Bell Bell, made out of a cannon projectile-memories of the war. Left and concrete fixings, similar to the dot. Interesting place-peace and war.
