Cave City

We toured the city that was chiseled into the side of the mountain. The caves and tunnels go deep into the mountain.  It was built around the 1100's and it has a sophisticated water system that moved the natural aquifers around the mountain. This rock city protected the people from outside invaders until a great earthquake exposed their city.  Today, 2011, monks still live in part of the city.
