  • How is this still possible in 2019 that no women are allowed in!!! We want to visit this, but since there is discrimination, we are not going !!! Too bad some men still bother their barling mothers!!!

  • The monastery looks very mesmerizing on top of the hill, it is worth a trip here at least for the sake of gorgeous views! Unfortunately, it was not possible to visit inside, because only men in closed clothes are allowed to enter the monastery (the entrance is forbidden in t-shirt and shorts). Keep that in mind if you plan to get inside!

  • Awesome ancient and inspiring place. Breathtaking views. Lots of cats. Women can't enter Monday ground as advertised. Monks are friendly. Especially Megor the one who meets you inside in front of the church. The working hours are so that they place is closed for visitors between 12 and 3pm.
  • Women cannot go in the monastery. Men can go in just fully clothed, but T-shirts are acceptable. The view is astonishing, even from the parking lot, you do not need to go inside to have the view. Road is good, you can get up there easily.
