Pero in Turkey 1 – The Monastery of St. Gabriel – ܕܝܪܐ ܕܡܪܝ ܓܒܪܐܝܠ

This might be one of the world oldest Christian establishments. Definitely the Syrian Orthodox Church oldest. Looks like they managed to find a peace with the Turkish government and the Kurds surrounding the monastery. Kind of a tourist spot now. People visiting, monks friendly.

Good relaxing Sunday afternoon trip.
