Chapel of the Burning Bush in St Katherine's Monastery, Sinai
Egypt

This small chapel inside St Katherine's Monastery on the Sinai peninsula is a true treasure chest with Christian Orthodox exhibits dating back to the 1st century. It was named after the bush you can see here, which apparently came from the bush Moses saw burning. The Monastery is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is visited by hundreds of people from all over the world.
