Great PaulVDV 2021-05-16 12:09

Hello Ike,
So this is somewhere near Jericho.
In my memory, Jericho was mainly Islamic and not Christian like Bethlehem, for example. I could be wrong.
I havenít seen these churches and of course even less the newer built churches nearby.
Beautiful strong contrast between the greener parts and the arid soils.
Best regards, Paul

Exclamation To PaulVDV: Jericho

You are right on, Jericho is an islamic town.
These monasteries are east of the town several KM by distance - but a whole different place, it goe's back in times when islam did not exist yet.
Thanks,
Ike
