  • The temple is closed, you can only see it from the outside, do not pass by, if you want to go to the waterfall or see the rain. Station

  • I really wanted to see it inside. I wish we could. The lock is hanging. I read that this place was the tomb of St. Simone Cananita. And then after his death the temple was erected. But it's just a version. To this day it is unknown where the tomb of Simon Cananita was actually. The temple has been reconstructed in no time.

  • Very beautiful. Almost timeless. Very touristy. Good place to find souvenirs.
  • In New Athos there were several times, but only having delved into The Istria of Abkhazia learned that it was the temple of Simon Canonite, the 3rd Apostle of Christ, here on this land the apostle preached Christianity, and accepted an excruciating death. The temple without tablets and information is not functioning, the approximate period of construction of the 5-6th century.
