  • In present, it functions as a nunnery and is one of the major pilgrimage sites in Georgia. It has a breathtaking view of the Alazani Valley and snow-capped Caucasus mountains. 
  • Nice place, very relaxed and serene by sensations. Area for tourists is big enough, in addition to the usual in such places, churches, bell towers and the cemetery, you can see part of the subsistence of the monastery and the wonderful panorama of the Alazani Valley. Visit the pool and plunge into the source of St. Nino, to descend the stairs in 700 with extra steps. The source itself is located in a brick Chapel. Was winter-arch was closed source, but in an adjacent building dezhurila nun, said alert there are on any given day and on holidays including. Slippers and Heaton for dipping, towel seems too (I had, so I lie here). The feeling after the source as Ivan in the fairy tale about Skate-gorubunka-like a newly born. Very recommend!

  • If you are travelling to Sighnaghi then take the short trip to Bodbe monastery. The old church and tower are worth a look but so is the new church under construction. The exterior is almost finished but the interior is yet to be started.
  • The Monastery of St. Nino at Bodbe. From Tbilisi, 105 km.
  • Astonishing place!
  • Monastery of St. Nino at Bodbe is a Georgian Orthodox monastic complex.
