What travelers say:

This monastery is under going major renovation. I am afraid that it is to become a major attraction for the national tourism. Unfortunately the work is being done in a very sloppy way, adding concrete anywhere, tearing down temples to building new ones instead... All very sad and not respecting the origins look at atmosphere of the area. So visit this before it becomes another them park also called AAAAA attraction :(
