                                        Though the UNSESCO 6th-century Jvari Church is really no less interesting than many similar churches in the area, many would admit that they visit here primarily for the impressive down to , the confluence of two rivers and the high Caucasus in the background. This church is simply adorned but beautifully positioned, and for that reason alone it draws in continual streams of tourists.

                                        It is possible to walk up here from in about an hour, but for GEL15 - 20 you can get a return easy enough.
                                        As with many such sites in the area, dress codes here are rather strict – as is photography. Try not to offend the locals if at all possible.
                                        The entrance to this site is a common place for beggars to linger, so perhaps have some change handy.
