- This church was originally built in 684 CE by a wealthy scribe named Athanasius, also credited with the building of the St Cyrus and St John Church. The St George Church burned down over a hundred years ago, leaving only a large wedding hall (Qaat el Irsan). The wedding hall dates from the 14th Century and measures 15 x 12 meters (50 x 40 feet). Notice the lovely windows of carved wood inlaid with ivory on the south wall. Modest dress required.
