Sümela MonasteryOn the rocks of Mela Mountain, the initial phase of the work is being carried on is almost finished. Also known as Black Mountain, this is the place where world-famous Sümela Monastery is located.

The historical Sümela Monastery is situated in Trabzon province. It’s one of the most significant structures in terms of religious tourism in the world. Lately, the popular structure has been closed for public viewing as the Ministry of Culture and Tourism carries on rock recuperation along with restoration work in the area. Unstable mountain rocks have been detached and reclaimed in the restoration.

The final boulder would be a 600-ton rock. The second phase of reinstatement will start shortly. After assembling and removing the huge broken rocks into manageable pieces, portion of the monastery will be reopened for the public.

In the monastery, as the rock reclamation work carries on, interior restorations are also happening. After the appropriate restoration, the proposal is to open every part of the structure, along with the chapels, to visitors.

To quote the director, “Previously, no other sections apart from the main cave church and yard could be visited in the monastery. The small chapels, library, kitchen and places where students stayed will also be open to visitors thanks to this restoration.”
