Day trip to David Gareji monastery complex and Sighnaghi

At the end of November, my mother visited me again in Georgia. We decided to make a few easy day trips during her stay in Tbilisi.

Our first day trip was to David Gareji Monastery complex and Sighnaghi.

Although I've been to these places for a dozen of times, I never get bored of them.

This time we took a road to David Gareji monastery complex via Rustavi town (which actually is a place I would love to return to take some urban photography), made a short stop at Gardabani to buy a freshly baked Azerbaijani bread, and followed a rocky road to David Gareji monastery complex.

Seems this is some military road, used by Georgian army located somewhere close. During the Soviet times, its said there has been a huge tank polygon somewhere in this area.



Oh, I always love scenes like this. Lovely.

We continued to the nearby town of Sighnaghi and spent about 10 minutes there taking a walk at Sighnaghi city wall which features beautiful views of Alazani valley.
