St. George Monastery of Koziba

The desert is undoubtedly one of those places that bring solitude and calm to those seeking it, and when you first catch a glimpse of the magical St. George’s Monastery in the Judean desert, you can’t imagine a better place for being at peace with yourself.

Saint George Monastery is an amazing cliff-hanging monastery, one of the world’s oldest and definitely one of the most inspiring churches in the Holy Land, is a must-see for the desert. It takes about 15 minutes down to the monastery on foot and 20-25 minutes on the way back and donkey rides are available. It originally started in the fourth century by a few monks who were looking to immerse themselves in the lifestyles and desert stories of John the Baptist and Jesus. A very nice panorama view can be seen from the top before walking down.
