Jan commented on September 22, 2013:

A perfectly preserved specimen of early religious culture. The architecture is impressive and still functional after all that time, be it over or a little under a thousand years. The facilities are basic, but the staff were very kind, and it is well worth a short visit if in the area, which is beautiful in all.
