inSPIREd Sunday

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.

  5. Wow! Not that is an interesting and unusual church! What a lot of work must have gone into digging all that out!!

  6. O Wow, they dug the church out of the rock. That was some task. Looks well worth the $5 to give to see the church
