At present from external influences they are protected by a strong iron roof. On the western wall of a fresco the Last Judgement, Chetyrekhgolovye Tserbery, the Babylon loose woman on an animal of the Apocalypse and the Fiery river flowing in the Hell, Bosch’s reminding pictures. Nearby there are less ominous lives sacred and delighted angels, and on a northern wall something the unknown building of a stone sacred with a nimbus. In very damaged apse it is still possible to distinguish frescos of the Assumption and Jesus Arrival to Jerusalem where the Rescuer goes more quickly not on a donkey, and on a horse. These frescos, the main sights of Turkey in a monastery, belong already to the XVII century, but are executed very skilfully for that and not so you wait from these enough late works.
