Davit Gareja in detail


Davit Gareja comprises about 15 monasteries spread over a wide area, but visitors usually just see two – Lavra, which has been restored since Soviet times and is now again inhabited by monks, and, just over the hill above it, Udabno, a series of caves painted with beautiful frescoes. It takes two to three hours and a lot of walking to explore Lavra and Udabno.
