The Monastery of Venerable David is dedicated to the Transfiguration of the Savior, yet associated with Saint David who lived his monastic life here in the 16th century. The feast of Saint David is November 1st and the Transfiguration is celebrated on August 6th. Within the church are the relics of St. David, his censor, his priestly stole, and other treasures. South of the Monastery is the cave of St. David, amidst many other chapels dedicated to various saints. 1,000 kilometers north of the Monastery is the Holy Spring, which according to tradition was created by St. David when he hit a rock with his cane.
