Monastery of David Gareja

Monastery of David Gareja

One of the most important and interesting destinations in Georgia is an ancient monastery David Gareja. It is a complex of cells, chappels, churches, living quarters and a water supply system... And this all is a rock-hewn Georgian Orthodox monastery. David Gareja is an active monastery and the monks demonstrate the wonderful example of life off the grid. Being just 60-70 km away from Tbilisi, the monastery is cut off the civilization by the desert. It makes the complex really-really remote. Here the visitors can admire some pretty flawy preserved but priceless frescos on the walls of ancient churches and cells which are carved in the rock including portraits of historical figures such as Georgian Queen Tamara.
