  • Love it. Very quiet and solemn place. The church is small but very beautiful indeed even tho is very foggy that day. Worth the visit.  more »
  • The place is really holy! Power and Power! A lot of pilgrims, tourists. It is better to go to such places, not being tied to time. The hotel is very quiet. The tour is a must for everyone to be told and shown. Very interesting story. Unfortunately, we have given a little time for independent visit to this monastery, so we must go! The brightest, warmest, joyful impressions of this holy place!

  • Photography prohibited but the interior has some really beautiful frescoes. Grave of st. nino was under restoration during my visit. The view from the monastery is really gorgeous.
  • Nice views of Alazani Valley and mountains ( if no clouds) of the Greater Caucasus . Beautiful convent . St.Nino,the Enlightener of Georgia , is buried here in the year of 337 AD. Good special atmosphere , looks so nice and clean. Good parking area.
