Mtskheta's Svetickhoveli monastery

I'm not a big monastery person, but this place was beautiful and serene. The inside was also quite interesting as it is a hodgepodge of religious history. This is a working monastery and as a result they keep adding to it over time. And you can spot monks...


Mtskheta is the old capital of Georgia and only a 20 min drive from Tbilisi. Situated in Mtskheta is Svetickhoveli and just outside atop a rock hill is Jvari.
