Motorcycle Travel Series by @velimir 'The Stone Gate' (Part #277)
'The Stone Gate'
The Upper Town was once upon a time a town of its own. It had several entrance gates and this is one of them. It was named Stone Gate and it remains so to the present day. There is tower above it, where an elitist fraternity has its headquarters.
The bottom part was converted into a place of worship a long time ago. People come to light the candles and thank for something that happened in their lives. Power of faith can make ordinary things look like miracles.
The walls are covered with thank you tablets. These are brought by people who are thankful for regaining health for themselves or members of their family. True or not, belief is a strong force that swings both ways.
The place is definitely interesting. People kneeling outside of the church is not seen very often. Hope their prayers get answered.
The candle wax is carefully gathered under the box to be reused. This raises the issue of the absurd amount of money the church is receiving from the government and still charging people money for all of their services, including funerals. People pay for everything here. Even for the recycled candles.
This sign says "It is prohibited to push carts through these gates, as well as ride a horse or drive cattle." But, don't believe everything you see. It is only a remake of an old sign that was hanging here ages ago. :D
Enjoy your day! :-)
