    The Beit Jamal Monastary has several things to offer the visitor, first is the scenery on your way there, the farming valleys that surround it are beautiful. The pictures show you the architecture of the Monastary itself, from the entrance archway to the bell tower. You will also find St. Stephen's Church, where legend has it the Christian martyr St. Stephen is buried. The inside of the church is fantastic with murals and light coming in through crystal glass windows. One of the priests gives a lecture about the history of the church and you can also see outside some of the original mosaics from the church floor.
