Old temple

I made this photo during a trip to Georgia. It is Gergeti Trinity Church built in 14th century. It is located 2170 meters over sea level. It is difficult to reach it. The weather is very changeable here and it started hailing when we came there in June. However the atmosphere in this holy place is inexpressible.
