Motsameta Monastery is the legendary red water monastery. There is a simple railway station called Motsameta. You can see this monastery on the top of the mountain after walking 1 km through the railway crossing. The top of the mountain where the monastery is located is right at the corner of the gorge. The Tskhaltsitela River goes around the mountain and presents a U-shape. The blue-toned murals inside the church seem to be brand new, and the wood carvings of angels on the doors are lifelike. Although the church is not large, it is somewhat delicate.
