Monuments of Georgian History

Monuments of Georgian History
Tbilisi

Tbilisi was founded by Vakhtang Gorgasali in the 4th century. The city is located in Eastern Georgia.
The oldest architectural monument in Tbilisi is the 6th century Christian church Anchiskhati. Christianity was spread in Georgia in 4th-5th centuries. Since the foundation of Tbilisi, there are ancient shrines of Hebrew, Islamic and Catholic confessions.

Mtskheta

Mtskheta – East Georgia. Archaeological expedition (base in Mtskheta with materials of Bronze and ancient period).
Mtskheta, one of the oldest cities of the country of Georgia (in Kartli province of Eastern Georgia), is located approximately 20 kilometres (12 miles) north of Tbilisi at the confluence of the Aragvi and Kura rivers. Mtskheta is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world. Due to its historical significance and numerous ancient monuments, the “Historical Monuments of Mtskheta” became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1994.

David gareja

David gareja – The complex was founded in the 6th century by David (St. David Garejeli), one of the thirteen Assyrian monks who arrived in the country at the same time. His disciples Dodo and Luciane expanded the original lavra and founded two other monasteries known as Dodo’s Rka (literally, “the horn of Dodo”) and Natlismtsemeli (“the Baptist”). The monastery saw further development under the guidance of the 9th-century Georgian saint Ilarion. The convent was particularly patronized by the Georgian royal and noble families. The 12th-century Georgian king Demetre I, the author of the famous Georgian hymn Thou Art a Vineyard, even chose David Gareja as a place of his confinement after he abdicated the throne.

Dmanisi

Dmanisi is located in Eastern Georgia 85 kilometers from Tbilisi. The first settlement of Dmanisi belongs to the 6th century. Dmanisi is first mentioned in the 9th century historical sources.
The medieval castle-city ruins are located near Dmanisi, on which territory, a human – hominid several skulls are discovered, which belong to the 1.6 million year-old period. Today, there is a museum reserve on this territory.

Bolnisi

Bolnisi is located 65 kilometers from Tbilisi. In the beginning of 19th century Germans were settled in the city which conditioned the development of small industry.
7 kilometers from Bolnisi there is 5th century Christian church, Bolnisis Sioni. On the wall of the church you can see an ancient example of Georgian writing.

Uplistsikhe

Uplistsikhe Built on a high rocky left bank of the Mtkvari River, it contains various structures dating from the Early Iron Age to the Late Middle Ages, and is notable for the unique combination of various styles of rock-cut cultures from Anatolia and Iran, as well as the co-existence of pagan and Christian architecture.

Vardzia

Vardzia is a cave monastery site in southern Georgia, excavated from the slopes of the Erusheti Mountain on the left bank of the Mtkvari River, thirty kilometres from Aspindza. The main period of construction was the second half of the twelfth century. The caves stretch along the cliff for some five hundred metres and in up to nineteen tiers.
