At the back of the Church, there is a jar full of Blessed water, make sure to take a sample while leaving. As per Christian traditions, Mar Nohra is the patron Saint of vision and this blessed water is a powerful spiritual remedy.

Close to Mar Nohra, an old little ruined chapel with a single nave could be seen, Our Lady of Gifts church.

This is one of the magical Churches I ever visit, a place full of holiness, marvel and wonder.

You will get the chance to experience praying in a ruined Church without roof laying under the blue sky and covered by a huge oak tree!
