Mar Saba

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

The Eastern Orthodox Mar Saba Monastery is the largest in Israel's Judaean Desert, which lies to the south and west of the capital city Jerusalam. Mar Saba is named after Saint Sabas, the monk who established the monastery in the 5th century. It was built along the cliffs of the Kidron Creek protecting it from harm. The monastery is currently home to about 20 monks.  Seen here in this drone video by content creator and pilot Rea_Burla, Mar Saba is located roughly halfway between Jerusalem and the Dead Sea.
