The name “Raifa” (Hebrew) is translated as “God kept.” Indeed, it seems like the higher forces guard this monastery.
The image of this shrine silhouettes quite clearly as a small stone church with the square basement and the entrance, which is slightly raised above the ground. In fact, it was a tower served as a place for worship and a shelter in the case of danger as well.
The guide will tell you about the monastery origin, an exact copy of the Georgian Icon of the Mother of God, which is still considered to be the main shrine of the monastery since the seventeenth century.
The singing of the church choir “Parable” and a leisurely walk along the lake shore will give you the special delight.
