Sally and Beth host inSPIREd Sunday!
March 2015 - Coober Pedy Australia
Highlights of our day in Coober Pedy.
As mentioned in that post Coober Pedy is renowned for its below-ground residences, called "dugouts", which are built due to the scorching daytime heat. The name "Coober Pedy" comes from the local Aboriginal term kupa-piti, which means "white man's hole".
The Serbian Orthodox Church is the town's largest and most impressive underground church, with intricate rock-wall carvings and a gorgeous vaulted ceiling
The window that appears ground level on the outside actually soars 20 feet over the church within.
