A masterpiece. Have stayed inside the monastery and had quite a life changing experience. Residing here is a learning opportunity for every visitor. They serve you breakfast at 8am in the morning, lunch at 12pm in the morning and Dinner at 6pm in the evening. With the chilling weather outside, the devotion inside, Key monastery is one of the most fascinating places in the world to spend a day at least.
The place is like in between the massive mountains. The monastery is amazing beautiful and great symbol of architecture. The place is amazing as you can find it in middle of beautiful covering mountain.
