Visit two very contrast destinations on the same day. Jvari Monastery, overlooking Mtskheta - the former capital of Georgia, is a very early architectural wonder. The hill it is located on offers a spectacular view of an ancient town situated at the confluence of two beautiful rivers. Surrounding area has become my favorite picnic destination as it is not very far from Tbilisi. According to a legend, "circa 8 century, there was a ''zip-line' connecting the monastery complex to the town of Mtskheta. " A fascinating story is attached to the sad ending of its existence. The tour continuous with a visit to the religious capital of Christian Georgia - Mtskheta. They call it the second Jerusalem as there are many important Christian relics kept in Svetitskhoveli Cathedral. Among them the most precious one is the Christ's robe berried beneath the cathedral foundation. The tour ends in Uplistsikhe which was the ancient rock-cut pagan capital of Georgia thousands of years ago. The visit that you won't regret.
