Photographer's Note

Mar Mattai Monastery is one of the oldest on Earth and currently almost completely desolated. 20 km from Mosul. The silence and stillness is overwhelming. Being there helps to understand why people chose this place for meditation and spending their entire days on contemplation. There is not a single disturbing sound around. It was a great experience to sit on the bench in front of it. The temperature was extreme even in April over 30 in the sun but the place gives cool aura and comfort.
