The Holy Mountain, Pt 6: Pantokrator

After Iveron, we went to the Monastery of the Pantokrator (again, see map here).

The top photo is above the entrance you walk through to enter the monastery.

The middle photo is of Panagia Gerontissa, the only full-body icon of the Theotokos and, of course, very old. Her eyes follow you wherever you walk in the room! See all my photos here for more on this and the whole trip in general.

The bottom photo is of murals inside the church where the monks usually pray.
