Aparani Church of Saint George, Martkopi is located on Vaziani-Martkopi-Norio road, some 30 km from Tbilisi.

The surviving foundation in front of it suggests that in ancient times a larger church stood here. The church was built by Dito Kakhurashvili in 2000, and in 2001 a 12-meter cross (authored by Zurab Matiashvili) was erected near it, which was blessed by Father Zaza (Bezhashvili) on the feast of Aparna. The Feast of Tabernacles is celebrated in the 3rd week of Easter

Our must-go destination for apple twigs around Easter time. Seems this area is nice for some barbeque too. Taken April 4, 2021 / DJI Mavic Air 2 Music by Scott Holmes: Our Big Adventure
