The church is single-nave vaulted temple that bears 13th-century frescoes with scenes from the Gospel (Resurrection of Lazarus, Entry into Jerusalem and Washbasin, several Saints etc).

Around the monastery there are the ruins of the buildings of the monastic complex (cells, warehouses, wells, threshing floor, etc). The walls of the buildings had no external openings, thus apparently worked as a defensive wall.
