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.

Left and concrete fixings, similar to the dot. Interesting place-peace and war.
