St Simeon Stylites
Simeon, born in about 390, spent over 30 years on a small platform on top of a stone pillar at this place until his death in 459. From 476 a large church and monastery complex was constructed at the site.
This view from the south is towards the central courtyard containg the base and remains of the pillar.
