    Kutaisi is that show. But this temple is extraordinarily beautiful-especially thanks to its location. Such appeasement, reverent silence (we arrived in the evening, and there was almost no tourists), calm has not suffered.

    Monastir very modest, the climate for it. We got to him in time, the devotion of prayer the priest and some woman (refused to pray after the change in Georgian). This cool black aprons for visitors (our foursome is the only alien).

    Kutaisi were only 1.5 days. Hired a taxi and went to 2 monasteries-Galati and Motsamere. This monastery is not large, well-groomed, is located in a very beautiful location in the mountains, breathtaking beauty! I advise everyone to visit there.

    Motsameta monastery is located 6 kilometers from Kutaisi, in a small village Motsameta. The monastery is set on a cliff top above the bend of the Tskaltsitela River. It was built in the 8th century. The name of Motsameta derives from Georgian name '' matryrdom '' and is connected to two brothers David and Konstantine Mkheidzeebi.

    After you park, you walk toward the monastery on a nice trail. The scenery around is astonishing - definitely worth a visit! The inside of the monastery looks brand new, but beautiful nonetheless.

    Less impressive than Gelati but set in a more aesthetically pleasing natural location, this monastery is quite charming. I don't like the newly-repainted (as opposed to restored) frescoes though...they look amateurish and, to my mind at least, fail to respect the beauty of the old medieval paintings. A pity!
