This is a very big and old orthodox monastery near Telavi. This is a big complex and with a small shop.

11th century cathedral with a few remaining frescoes. Unfortunately, one cannot access the balcony because the stairs are closed off.

One of the places worth to stop by if you are around. Beautiful Georgian monastery, one of many more. There is a nice winery and reustarant right in front.

You gasp when you see the magnitude of this magnificent cathedral from a distance. Against the backdrop of the Caucasus, this monastery stands proud. A must visit for anyone to Georgia!

That is a big and impressive monastery and cathedra. The greatest impression is when you look at it from a distance but ... when you come closer it is still impressive!
