"Moscovia" Monastery
--------------------

Built by the Russian Orthodox Church at the end of the 19th century. Originally the name of the church was "Gorny" meaning "Mountainous" in Russion. But since then it has been nicknamed "Moskovia" (Arabic for Moscow) by the local Arab villagers, because of the domes on its roof similar to other Russian churches. The monastery has two churches enclosed within a compound wall.
