Beirut, Lebanon

Very beautiful monastery on a hill overlooking Mtskheta and the confluence of two huge rivers in Georgia. Opens up on great picturesque landscapes. Must visit, but beware of the very windy weather.

The VI century Georgian Orthodox monastery is built on a hill opposite Mtskheta, at the confluence of Aragvi and Mtkvari rivers. Shortly after the adoption of Christianity, King Mirian III erected an enormous wooden cross on this site. In the 2nd half of the VI century Guaram, the ruler of Kartli, built a small church beside the Holy Cross. The church is included on the UNESCO World Heritage Site list.

For some seriously scenic views and a good dash of history, Jvari Monastery is ideal. It sits at the confluence of two rivers on a rocky cliff overlooking the historic town of Mtskheta. It's believed that Saint Nino (Georgia's patron Saint) placed a wooden cross on this spot and gave birth to Georgia's Orthodox faith.

Attractive monastery overlooking Mtskheta. The hillside location provides a great vantage point for viewing the city and the converging rivers. The monastery itself is also quite attractive and worth a quick browse but is relatively compact so it won't take much time to see.
