  • 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...

  • What very well could be the most beautiful monastery in all of Georgia 🇬🇪🤩⛪ I absolutely adore this monastery not just because of the beautiful frescoes but also because the priests were burning some heavy incense which provided some amazing lighting effects coming through the domed windows 👌👌👌 Another thing I also really loved about this monastery was the clergy were working with bees to produce honey and pollinate the local plant life. These bee boxes were just next to the monasteries bell tower full of handcrafted bells which were also quite beautiful in and of themselves 🔔 The ride out here on the motorcycle is absolutely fabulous cutting through the mountains on super tight technical twisties but with brand new pavement it's an absolute dream 🏍️💨🚀🚀🚀 Really enjoyed the afternoon out here surrounded in nature and religious beauty 💜🔥🌌
