|Entrance to Chapel of St. George|
One must take off their shoes before entering the small cluster of rooms in the shrine. People were saying prayers while lighting candles, waving the vapors from the alter toward their faces, and were religiously wrapping the chains that supposedly once held St. George around themselves. Some Coptics believe that wearing the chains that had been worn by martyrs is a source of holy blessing as well as miracles.
