Thanks zenas, for the great photos! :kewl:

Not only are many of them really fine quality photos, but it's so wonderful to have actual cave pictures up instead of all the arguing that's consumed so much of the board lately.
:thanks:

Zenas,

Cave of Melidoni reminds me of Palmito or Bustamante Cave in Mexico. It also is used for religious ceremonies.

We were laboring up the mountain one day through all the switchbacks when we got passed by two nuns in full habit with a bunch of little girls. (blush)

Well, ancient greeks were using the caves for religious ceremonies but not as christians of course. These christian temples are very common to the greek caves and it's not from the ancient ages but recent. It's memorial to the greeks killed inside these caves by the Turks and Germans.

To this particular cave of Melidoni in Crete, 370 greeks (women and children mostly) killed by the Turks (20 Oct. 1823).
Their bones are inside this small temple to the first chamber of the cave.
