We went here as part of a group tour. The site itself is really interesting and we walked around it for an hour or so. There are food and drink places here and the usual souvenir shops, also a museum which was nice.

An interesting place. It's good to see what people have done and how lived. Be careful there and don't go there if you're scared of lizards or you are a "flip-flop" person :)

The feeling you get while up there, makes you feel like diving back in the memory of time and imagining how Queen Tamara lived in this place! Beautiful Experience.

Not far from Gori, 15 minutes in the taxi, this is a great place to spend a few hours looking at the caves and the church. It also has great vistas of the surrounding area.

It's quite a climb to the top - great for me, but it would be tricky for some. The incredible views from the top... More
