The equestrian statue of the founder of the city stands on a pedestal in the courtyard of the Metekhi church. The King is depicted sitting on a horse on the banks of the Kura river overlooking the old town on the other bank. One of his hands is raised as if wishing his followers or waiting for the return of his falcon (which as per the local legend) led to the formation of the city.

The statue is easily visible from the old town and is easily accessible. As a monument to the founder of the city, it is definitely a must see. It is also a great photo-spot overlooking the river.

It should go here, especially to fans of beautiful views. Very good photos, especially in the evening - the whole city is well highlighted. Generally, there are a lot of interest, I would advise to walk on the opposite side on the embankment of the Mtkvari, there is a beautiful view of the house with balconies on a cliff above the river.An impressive monument to the man who made a great contribution to the country's development. His personality is surrounded with many legends. Monument, established in 1970, fits perfectly into the style of the city.

The Monument of King Vakhtang Gorgasai is strategically located on top of a hill overlooking the Old Town. I passed by this attraction on my way to the Sulfur Bath area.

this place is visible in your way, anywhere you want to go, in Tbilisi, a big statue of the king, in front of a view of the city that is worth seeing.
the church is also a big one although it is currently under a restore process.
watching it in the daytime or near the sunset is what I recommend, and you can walk to this place from Avlabary metro Station or go to the Metkhi Square by taxi or tourist buses.

This equestrian statue stands just before the striking dramatically positioned old Metekhi Cathedral on a cliff above the Mtkvari river.
It's dedicated to King Gorgasali, 5th cent ruler of the Iberian kingdom, famous for its battles with Iran and establishing Tbilisi as a new capital.
Perfect city views from the statue plateau.

This review is quite late. The Monument of Georgian King Vakhtang Gorgasali is strategically located on top of the hill which overlooks the city of Tbilisi. It is an attraction any visitor will not miss when touring around the Old City.
