What travelers say:

Gelati Monastery was built in the 12th century AD, the most powerful Georgian King David IV. The great king who led Georgians to drive Turks out of Transcaucasus was buried in the monastery. This Byzantine building is currently undergoing renovations, but it does not prevent access to the interior. The main building of the church retains a large number of frescoes from the 12th to 18th centuries in the Virgin Church, which is breathtaking. There are two kinds of frescoes, mosaic paintings and frescoes. The interior of the church is mainly frescoes. Although the entire mural from the dome to the root of the wall has gone through hundreds of years, the original beautiful color has faded, but the splendid history can be seen from the mottled historical traces.
