Caucasus, Georgia: Jvary Monastery

Continued from:

In December-January I travelled in Georgia, South Caucasus. It was my first winter visit to this beautiful country.

The air of Georgia is crystal, absolute healthy and charming.

No wonder, Georgian people are hearted, charming and full of sense of humor.

The Georgian Orthodox Jvari Monastery (Monastery of the Cross) at Mtskheta.

You can enjoy Georgian spiritual singing by monks at 

It was built in an early tetraconch style (a four-apsed domed structure) on the VII century.

Below the monastery you see how two Georgian emerald-green rivers Aragva and Cura are jointing in one flow.

Far at the distance, there is an ancient Georgian capital – Mtskheta.

We shall see it tomorrow,
