Sinca Veche Monastery

Looking for spectacular Transylvania sights?

Rock carved, the Sinca Veche Monastery, also known as the Ursitelor Temple (the Temple of the Chosen Ones), has a single source of light: a hole in its ceiling. 

The first time you go in, you may have a strange feeling when stepping into the darkness. The chill that comes from inside only amplifies this sensation. 

The interior is yellowish, made entirely of stone, and there are two altars, one in each room. Near them, there are a few images carved into the walls. The church is small and does not resemble the classic Orthodox ones. Inside, there are symbols carved into the wall, that have nothing to do with orthodoxy (the Star of David or Yin and Yang).
