Mts'khet'a Things to Do: 37 reviews and 102 photos


Jvari (or Djvari) monastery stands on a hill overhanging Mskheta in the South-east. It is close to the city and can easily be seen from Sveti Skhoveli but it rained hard and we felt that the rainy and foggy landscape was not worth the climb and we skipped it, as we had skipped Bebris Tsikhe.
It is a cruciform church and the main historical landmark of Georgia. It was built in the Vith century in a place where Saint Nino is said to have erected a wooden cross.
