When going on a religious trip or tour, you get the fantastic opportunity to meet fellow believers and make new friends. Going on such a trip with your friends or a special group of people are memories made for life and it’s an incredible experience.
These trips often not only focus on the religious part of the destination but also the historical and cultural heritage. You’ll experience the cuisine and do sightseeing as well.
Jerusalem and the whole of Israel are definitely seen as one of the most sacred places in the world. With Mount Sinai in Egypt and The Jordan also being favorites amongst travelers.
Remember to pack extra flash drives or storage devices for your photos and comfortable walking shoes. A good travel tip from us for these tours would be to dress in layers. Always have something to “cover up” when visiting religious sights. Furthermore always remember to take store bought bottled water with you on these trips.
The Monastery of Saints John and George of Choziba is also best known as Saint George Monastery in Wadi Qelt (Arabic: دير القديس جورج) or simply the Monastery of Choziba. It is located in Wadi Qelt, in the eastern West Bank, Jerusalem.
The monastery is open to the public daily (except on Sundays and certain holidays).
However in reference to our Travel Tip above, here is a strict dress code. No shorts for men; no trousers of any sort for women (women must wear a long skirt) and should wear a modest top.
