It is said that any Christian should visit the Holy Places at least once in a lifetime. The best way to feel a connection with God is to go on a pilgrimage to the Holy Places. In my opinion you should go on a pilgrimage with an organized group led by a priest. It is a perfect way to understand the history and the religious significance of those places.
Hozeva wilderness is a place loaded with divine energy, which hides the beautiful St. George’s Monastery. The valley of Hozeva, also called the desert of Judea, is one of those breathtaking places where tourists can admire unique landscapes and sights.
You will feel speechless in front of these amazing landscapes. After a two-kilometer walk through the desert, you will discover St. George’s Monastery which is the symbol of Hozeva. This Greek Orthodox monastery is located in Palestine, somewhere between Jerusalem and Jericho.
This sacred place was named after Saint George the Hozevite and it was built into a mountain rock by Saints Joachim and Anne. The architectural style of this cliff-hanging monastery is impressive. The facade of the monastery and the cliff are the same color which creates a very peaceful image.
Inside the church, you will experience a mixture of emotions: inner peace, balance and joy. This place which is loaded with a special type of energy is perfect for prayer and meditation. You will definitely feel different after the pilgrimage to this holy place.
