    Stop At: David Gareja Monastery, Mount Gareja, Udabno Georgia

Add to this the total lack of provision for visitors, the absence of any efforts to restore or protect the frescoes, the frequent tensions with Azerbaijan, and visiting Davit Gareja remains a real adventure.

    Day 3: Tbilisi-Khevi Province - Kazbegi

    Stop At: Jvari Church, Mtskheta Georgia

    According to traditional accounts, in the early 4th century Saint Nino stayed here to pray and erected a wooden cross on Mtskheta’s highest hill. The church was built on the crest of a cliff at a confluence of the rivers Mtkvari and Aragvi. It is a representative of the tetra conch architectural type that was popular not only in Georgia but also in the Byzantine world.

    Jvari served as a model for many other churches in the country. Unusual and varied relief sculptures decorate its façades. The importance of the Jvari complex increased over time and attracted many pilgrims. According to the legend, pilgrims visiting the site shed tears while praying and the nearby natural lake was named the Lake of tears.

    The harmonious relationship between the landscape, architectural forms and divisions, the well-thought-out disposition of decorative elements and splendid relieves carved on big slabs of stone give the south and east walls special expressiveness. Among the reliefs of the east wall are found the portraits of the kings who built the church. Included in UNESCO world heritage sights, the monument is still used for major celebrations.

You will find huge echoing halls, long meandering corridor-streets, chambers for pagan worship and even the remains of Georgia's oldest theater there. You will be impressed by the skill, knowledge, experience and physical and spiritual power of all those, who created this unique monument.

    The history of Uplistsikhe goes back to the 2nd-1st millenniums B.C. In antiquity, the city was one of the most important centers of Kartli and in the middle Ages, it stood on an important trade route that linked Byzantium with India and China. In the 10th-16th century B.C. one of the strongest communities, residing on this territory used the natural caves for dwellings, later Uplistsikhe became one of the strongest political, cultural, religious and economic centers and the royal residence.

    After the establishment of Christianity as the state religion, in the 30s of the 4th century, the town began to decline. During Mongol invasions in the 12th century it was badly damaged and soon in the 13th century, the hordes of Genghis Khan's son Khulagu finally destroyed it. The five thousand inhabitants of Uplistsikhe perished and life ended forever in the fortress.

    Today various kinds of halls, rooms, and buildings made in different epochs still survive. Archaeological findings such as ritual things and jewels made of gold, silver, Iron, bones, stone and clay sculptures shed light on the history of the town. Archaeologists claim that the people of Uplistsikhe had close ties with the centers of Urartu, Asia Minor, and Greek-Roman countries. The handicrafts made here are of high artistic quality, today kept in the State Art Museum of Georgia.
