St. George's Church  / Ahalkalaki St. George Church is located close to the Tsalka town in the village of Dashbashi.

It was in mid-July 2020, when we discovered this place by accident, during an unplanned trip to Tsalka, we decided to look for the "famous" Dashbahsi Canyon, where we found a little cafe and as I had my DJI mini Mavic drone with I did some flying around the area, just to discover this picturesque church atop of the rock. Awesome.

It was a lot of fun flying a drone from the nearby cafe (located some 200 meters) and explore the area from the top.

I did some impressive drone video shooting also from this point.
