King George IV of Georgia. It was founded by David in the twelfth century (1130). It was recognized as a Unesco heritage site in 1994, but was warned by unesco as a result of improper repairs. Unique mosaics and biblical murals should be seen.
Very nice, worth a visit. September 2019 is a building under reconstruction. A lot of work remains to be done. The place is also very pleasant for atheists. Very nice panoramic views that are worth seeing.
Despite being considerably under construction, it was delightful to enter this monastery church and be amazed by the colourful frescoes adorning every bit of wall and archway! They intricate detail and the stories are well restored and it looks breath-taking. David the Builder also has his humble tomb on the grounds that he wished for the common folk to walk over, but the locals evidently avoid doing this in respect.
