Katskhi Pillar
Program:

Driver-guide will meet you in the hotel.

  • Our trip will start in the Imereti region. Katskhi Pillar is a place that stays in the memory once and for all. Natural beauty complemented in religious architecture leaves a deep imprint on the soul. Katskhi Pillar is a giant limestone monolith 40 meters high above the ground, on top of which there is a church built between the 6th and 8th centuries. At the top of the pillar Katskhi there are the Ascension Monastery and the church built in stone according to the old style - a small hall 4.5 meters wide and 3.5 meters high. The decoration of the church is simple, one might say ascetic.

      At the top of the pillar you can also see the old wine cellar, crypt and part of the fortress wall.

      Climbing to the top of the pillar is not so easy - you can get to the heavenly temple only by a hanging ladder that requires        considerable courage and permission from the prior.

      Women are not allowed to climb Katskhi pillar because of the monasteries strict regulations.

  • Return to Tbilisi.
