Rojen monastery

Every Bulgarian monastery has been build around fresh water spring, to be able to withstand prolonged siege by the mediaeval enemy. Once the approach of the enemy is observed, the monastery sheep herds are being ushered inside the monastery and the doors are being shut close until the danger goes away.
