Big sculpture of a man on the horse with a funny hand gesture. Locals have many legends about meaning of this gestures, though the monument is on the right place, I think.

The monument is a kind of a symbol of Tbilisi with the cathedral and the bridge on the river. it has a very dramatic view from the side of the old city. it is located in the same area and same entrance of Metekhi Cathedral. At night it looks very beautiful because of the lighting.

The sculpture is very interesting and it is located near the church so to form a beautiful complex. The only thing is that it is difficult to have a very good picture of the statue.

One would be remiss if one were not to take the extra stroll across the bridge to this masculine statue. It has a fine view -- couples (including my wife and I) like to come here after they get married for photo ops!

This statue stands, as it always has, overlooked the Kura or Mkvari River. It is so much part of Georgia's history - and can be viewed from the cable car, Mt Mtsatminda - but is particularly beautiful at sunset. Georgia history, medieval, is never far from the people or the culture perhaps even more so now that they are away... More

Just near Metekhi Church, it overlooks the river. While visiting old Tbilisi and Metekhi old church this statue will be on your view.
