Syria managed to keep a unique monument of architecture
Residents of the Syrian city managed to preserve the unique monument of architecture - Christian Church with more than a thousand years of history.

The city is so much famous because its territory is the 2nd of the oldest Christian churches in the world - the Church of St. George. Anyway, so according to the Syrian Ministry of tourism. Square building, the walls are made of Sandstone. Exactly built temples in the Byzantine Empire. This was founded in the year 515.

The rector of the Church of St. George Elijah Carracci "In this Church there is an ancient system of natural lighting. Roof, Windows and immediately above them the dome. There is a system against earthquake, it is a purely Greek invention. Of course, the scale of the time, this is a very rich Church."

The temple bears the name of St. George, because his Creator is, according to legend, met a Martyr. It is written on the label, in the Greek language.

"Inside there is a crypt with the body of St. George. Now there's only one finger and a helmet. Because during the fourth crusade the crusaders took the relics to Rome. But then returned them to Palestine."

Israel has always been considered a Christian city. In combat she is almost not affected, but a few months ago, before the start of the truce, in the district turned a real battle for Sheikh Miskin. Now the main task here is to establish a peaceful life in what local authorities actively help the Russian military.

In the Church of St. George again, as always in time of peace, are daily services, and priests perform ceremonies according to the request of the parishioners, which is about 400 families. All of them have returned to their homes. That Israel has survived and retained its relics, the great merit of the citizens. they came to the defense of the city and not let the enemy. And now my dream is to restore his world-famous temple. Moreover, this decision was made was 6 years ago, but then because of the war work had to be postponed.
