Carpentry (doors, windows) was not replaced (as say some of the leaders of the day, not even crossed the threshold of the church) simply do not exist! Joinery to put the current following the conclusion reached under which damage restoration specialists in the northern wall of the church was caused by water infiltration, correlated with frost in winter. They tried all kinds of heating in winter but each did most damage: wood stove, made smoke and dust, electric heaters, because excessive moisture were shorted and took fire and gas heaters increase humidity on . Add to these the fact that after heating, wall and floor water evaporates, making the church in the sauna, resulting in condensation accumulating on the fresco where dripping water as a rain drop before summer. So he resorted to this work which insulates heat very well and, following this work, the temperature in winter of 2003 the church has not ever dropped below 50 C. This had a beneficial effect on painting who has back and even some parts that until now were unreadable can now be seen.

Now you are showing how it is inside this cave church.I have seen cave temples in India but not church. The paintings are very beautiful.I am amazed that the beauty of these churches still can be seen with all the damages due to wind, water,weather and other causes . Someday, I like to see these Rupestral Church.

Bonsoir, cher Ovidiu,
Une composition qui m'intéresse au plus haut point. Un grand merci pour la note d'accompagnement très enrichissante et fort bien rédigée.
La prise de vue est excellente et permet d'apprécier cet édifice religieux peu ordinaire !
