Situated at the confluence of the Mtkvari and Aragvi rivers, World Heritage Site Jvari Church sits alone atop a desolate, windswept mountaintop. A Georgian Orthodox monastery founded in the 6th century, the site is where St. Nino converted King Miriam to Christianity (according to tradition) and erected a cross on an existing pagan temple. The current church is believed to have been built between 590 and 605 CE. Explore this site to get a sense of the religious history of the nation. Attempt to read the inscription on the facade, which is said to date the structure by naming the principle builders involved in the construction.

Great location on top of a hill with amazing views all around. The monastery is small overall but I liked that walking path around it and the sight of the meeting point of two rivers.
A beautiful monastery, well preserved and with many beautiful carvings. It’s situated on a hilltop so the view is understandably amazing. There’s quite a lot of people but not overcrowded. Close to Tbilisi, so well worth a visit!
