This monastery is also believed to be visited by the Holy family.
The monastery lies under mountain cliffs. Thousands of people
come to the monastery to attend an annual mulid
or the celebration that commemorates the visit of Jesus and
"And when they were departed, behold, the angel of
the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and
take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt,
and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will
seek the young child to destroy him.
When he arose, he took the young child and his mother by night,
and departed into Egypt:
And was there until the death of Herod: that it might be fulfilled
which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Out of
Egypt have I called my son." (Mt. 2: 13-15)
