Passing clouds create patterns of light and shade on the granite cliffs to the north of the monastery.

Bema Windows

Two windows allow light to enter into the bema. On the outside, the vertical stone between the windows has been carved with two outer columns and a central pier, each surmounted by a capital. The central pier supports a cross atop an orb. These were carved in the sixth century.
