Monastery of Virgin Mary

The monks who used to reside at Rabban Hormizd still visit there during the day, but the new facility is where they reside and administer the community. Its feast day is ever 15th May.

The campus has a large courtyard for festivities, an outstandingly large and ornate church, two cloisters with gorgeous details, and a reasonable giftshop. There are often pilgrims and events.

It is possible to stay overnight at the monastery, although the dormitories can get crowded when large events take place. It is recommended to call in advance.
