The churches are monolith structures and all surrounded by the rock wall. In the wall surrounding there are many small caves, they are homes to monks and nuns. In Bet Giyorgis church one cave contains the bones of pilgrims, people come to touch them and to give alms to the nun who also lives in the cave.
