The Cave Church, also referred to as the Monastery of Saint Simon is actually located in an area that is called the ‘Garbage City’. The scintillating church is actually cut into a cave with well-done interiors, stone sculptures cut into walls and a lot more. There are a total of 3 churches here including a hidden chapel. The church is massive and the experience of hearing a mass here is out of the world.
