A winding road up to the Monastery which is located high on a hill, isolated and still occupied by Monks. The opportunity was provided to visit the Church. The frescoes were unbelievable and still remarkably intact, considering that they date back to the 9th Century', so I believe. There was a wonderful, serene atmosphere as we walked around the Monastery. The views over the valley and surrounding countryside were spectacular. Another unique Georgian Monastery, located in another unique location.

Hidden away at the end of a windy road in a beautiful peaceful location. We were lucky to have one of the monks come over to open the church for us and tell us about the history of this 9th century place with lovely frescoes. In need of more restoration s we were happy to make a donation

As is the case with so many of the Georgian monasteries, it is the location that makes it. The church is interesting, slightly run-down, and still with the feeling of a working Christian church. The road up from the town is windy but the surface is good. No problem for a regular car. The countryside is up to the usual high Georgian standards. They say no photos, but there was no-one there to check most of the time.

The drive along the river (potholes) was beautiful. This is a monastery still very much in use. The frescoes made this monastery special (no photos). The setting is peaceful with few visitors. And then you hear the roar of artillery practice echoing down the canyon.

Absolutely amazing landscape around this church, which was built in 9th century, church wall painting with magic colors are surprising and absolutely outstanding, by serpentine road you get this wonderful place and it really worth effort, inside the church you find yourself in another dimension - as though in 9th century so, highly recommend to visit this place nearby Akhaltsikhe (New castle in English)
