That is interesting - I tried Tineye but got mostly Russian sites and could not find just where the pic was.

You are very welcome, Gabrielle. Actually, I can't take the credit for finding the information about this particular place. Tineye helped me with this... :)

Thank you, Mary, how clever of you to find this. What an extraordinary looking place -so ancient and weathered.

Forgot to say that the last photo in the link is the photo to look for....

Hi Gabrielle, Hoping you are well. I managed to find these links to help find out where this place is. I have translated it for you. Hope it helps. Have a great week and take care... :) If you follow the canyon-like part of the Kidron Valley to the east, we reach the Greek Orthodox monastery of Mar Saba, which should have been founded around the year 440th. It did leave out a lot, but we were told that monks still live here. Is in the centuries after its foundation, it houses up to 4,000 monks.

Where is this, is it populated or abandoned?
