_We***37Mtskheta - Georgia’s former capital is an amazing city where you can feel the Georgian soul. Svetitskhoveli Cathedral built in the 11th century is the place you should visit once you’re in Georgia.

Mitchell IssaVery beautiful monastery on a hill overlooking Mtskheta and the confluence of two huge rivers in Georgia. Opens up on great picturesque landscapes. Must visit, but beware of the very windy weather.

Historical Site
东夷西羌的行游生活Mtshhta, Georgia's ancient capital, has two World Heritage sites. First, it is located at the cross monastery on the hill opposite the confluence of the Kula and Aragvi rivers, overlooking the entire old town of Mtshhta and the spectacular view of the confluence of the two rivers. The church is a short distance from the old town and needs a taxi from the city. Next is the Cathedral of Life's Column in the city center. The church has a history of thousands of years and is the most important church in Georgia. Christianity became the state religion of Georgia in the 4 century, and the establishment of this church also marked the acceptance of Christianity in Georgia.

山水人生The name of the church we visited was Samtavro Epiphany, which is also known as the San Nino Ladies Convent. In our opinion, perhaps the latter term is more appropriate, because all the nuns we see here. Saint Nino who guided Georgia to convert to the Orthodox Church once lived here, so there is a Saint Nino chapel on the east side of the church compound. Almost all female tourists who come to visit or worship will go there to check in and check in. The incense is very strong. It is said that the location of the house is the place where San Nino worshipped. No wonder it is so sacred. Inside the church are the nun's robes and the coffin of the king and queen who was guided by her to establish the Orthodox Church as the state religion. So coming here is considered a very sacred place in Georgia, but unfortunately we saw not many tourists here. There are also many cemeteries for nuns in the church compound. The owners of these cemeteries may have interpreted different stories in the past. There is a small museum behind the yard. Walk in and take a look, mainly with pictures and text introductions. Because of the language barrier, I don't know which monastery leader is showing.
