A small monastery located a long drive from Tbilisi. There is also a short offroad section before you reach this monastery. There is a small garden with few butterflies there. Near the monastery there is also water flowing from the springs.

Amazing monastery to visit if you're close-by. This place is very peaceful and church is located inside the forest. Sad story but you'll also see in the small chapel on the left, some of the remaining bones that were found around that area.
