The church itself is not very exceptional, but it's located in living monastery. If you are lucky, you can see monks and nuns and even people coming to offer their belongings to the monastery, like crops or sheep. The atmosphere of the christianity is the...More

Georgia has many churches and monasteries looking almost the same, but yet very beautiful. This one in Mtskheta was the third we visited that day, after the uphill Jvari and huge Svetitskhoveli Cathedral. They left a strong impression on us, so we looked at this...More

Set in a walled nunnery, this church dating from the C12th contains interesting detail and murals. It is a short walk from the centre of Mtskheta, through an area of local shops.

This monastery is different from others I seen because of the wall around, it looks more as a fortress than a church. But inside it was just restored with beautiful wall paintings. It's big and I think it worth the visit. Outside the wall there...More

The view is the main attraction to me. The church itself is small and modest. I believe it was worth the trip. We drove to the town but took a taxi up to this monastery. We found a taxi that took us there and back...More

Not the main site in Mtskheta, but worth a visit if you are there. I could see the nuns working on the garden, and it was quite interesting.

This review is quite late. Although there were scores of tour packages for Mtskheta from Tbilisi, I decided to do the tour independently. I went to Didube Bus Station and took the minibus bound to Mtskheta. There were other tourists on the bus so we...More

It was raining when we visited the third church of the day, but were mollified by the information that Georgia's first Christian king, David, 'the Builder' was interred in a garden tomb adjacent to the main church; the original bronze doors are still identifiable. Dedicated...More

This is an ancient church rebuilt several times in the past, still being used for worship. There were lots of volunteers looking after the church. There were no inscriptions in English for the tourists. The cemetery out side is well kept. English inscriptions would have...More
