A few of the churches we visited in Georgia–an interesting contrast to the Armenian church. Check it out…
The monastery of Davit Gareja set into a rock formation on the border with Azerbaijan.
Sapara Monastery found at the end of a rough and winding mountain road.
One of the carvings at Sapara. Grapes are a common religious image in Georgia, one of the first countries in the world to produce wine.
St. Nino's cross. She was the first to bring Christianity to Georgia from Cappadocia which we visited last month.
Cave Monastery of Vardzia. At its peak thousands of monks lived here. It was very impressive.
A shopkeeper's wall. Icons are an important part of the Eastern Orthodox Tradition.
An interesting carving on a church at Mtskheta.
