  • a National Sanctuary of the 6th century, which has been brought by good care and investment back to a respectable State. The frescoes inside are usually somewhat overworked but also partly in the original condition, you should have seen. The history of the monastery is impressive.

  • 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.
  • Must see place
