Well, lets put this way, if you are in Tbilisi, you really don't want to miss this !!

See if you can find info about the history before going there, look closely to the outside of the church and see if you can detect worn off stones on the side of the building... read more

The monument and the square around it offer some nice evening view of Tbilisi, Narikala Fortress, Old Town... Too bad they close it after 8 pm.

The monument to the king who founded Tbilisi and the adjacent church complex are well worth seeing. The garden has comfortable, shaded benches with fantastic views over the river and the old town. The complex is a short uphill walk from the river or a stroll downhill from the Avlabari metro stop. As usual in Tbilisi, watch your footing on... More

This monument s dedictated to the king who brought capital to Tbilisi from old Mtskheta (absolutely must visit place... More

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 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

The monument located in the same area and same entrance of Metekhi Cathedral. At night it looks much beautiful because of the lightings. Do take a photo from the opposite site. looks good.
