The Black Madonna is the main attraction of the Jasna Gora monastery. Believers and gawkers from around the world come to pay homage, pray for miracles, or simply observe the throngs of faithful, zealots, fanatics (whatever it is you choose to call them). The monastery complex, basilica, and various chapels are incredible to see.

This image of Mary and Jesus is the highpoint of the visit. Several miracles have been attributed to this image.

Unless you are Catholic, you won't enjoy visiting this. Even those 'modern" Catholics find it too much. It's crowded, defies belief and has a shade of superstition around it.

This is with a great big monastery.

The architecture is absolutely beautiful and really unique on the inside.

There were heaps of people here.

The whole experience with the unveiling of the black Madonna was very unique and wonderful. Its s prayerful place of God, with a feeling of peace and grandeur. The miracles worked and the relics make it a beautiful experience for all Catholics and believers. But its also a great place to visit and to hear how the town and monastery were spared the destruction unleashed by the Germans during World War 2. Other cities like Warsaw were not so fortunate. But this place is truly blessed and miraculous.

This famous painting hangs in a chapel in the Jana Gora Monastery. You can visit it by standing in line at the chapel and filing through. The line keeps moving, so even if it is long, you don't really wait too many minutes. The line moves slow enough for photography. Both the chapel and the painting are pretty amazing and worth seeing.

Our group was fortunate to arrive at the church housing the Black Madonna to coincide with the daily unveiling of the painting. Although Mass was being celebrated we were still able to walk around the church and see the Madonna. The faith of the Mass-gouers was much in evidence. Quite inspiring.
