Davit Gareja cave monastery complex
Private sightseeing tour Introduction:
Davit Gareja monastery complex spread on about 25 hectares was founded by One of thirteen Assyrian fathers in the "desert", near the border of Muslim Azerbaijan republic, in the first half of VI century. Nowadays more than 10 monasteries, hundreds of cells, churches, chapels, refectories and living quarters hollowed out of the rock face are included in the complex. Part of the complex is also located in the Agstafa rayon of Azerbaijan and thus has become subject to a border dispute between Georgian and Azerbaijani authorities.
The area is also home to protected animal species and evidence of some of the oldest human habitations in the region. Cave Monastery complex was the centre of Georgian original style fresco writing, manuscript rewriting and translation. Here u can enjoy not only visiting the beautifully painted caves but with dramatic views of unusual desert.
