  Carved roof from rocks in the cliff
by RedEaredPanda

You can see the inside of the Geghard monastery is carved rock. In the 13th century, they carved the rock from above the cliff and slowly made their way inside the monastery carving and carving and transporting the rocks out from where they began carving.. The dimensions and the carvings inside the church are amazing.. You should see it for yourself to believe its beauty. There is only natural light coming from a round hole in the roof inside the church.
