You have probably noticed Tabor Monastery of the Transformation in Tbilisi if wandered around Abanotubani district - it's the one you can see up in the hill left from Narikala. The idea to visit this site arrived for me when some of the Georgia Expat Photographer club members posted a picture of this church.

I believe you can climb up here and have a lovely and a very spectacular hiking trip doing that, but for this time we opted for a more convenient way - a taxi. We took a regular street taxi and he took us up here, agreed to wait for 30 minutes while I will take photography here, and the took us back to the city for 20 Lari. 

And this is actually the way I suggest to you for getting here if you aren't familiar with area.

As I learned later this church has been built just recently (2012), some construction works still are performed here.

On 7th September 2012 the monastery was founded on Tabor mount. The project is not complete yet, but building of church is finished. Source: TABOR MONASTERY OF THE TRANSFORMATION (TBILISI)

The Bottom line

I have probably just found a new place for awesome Tbilisi landscape photography. I'm interested to return here most probably in Summer when a lot of light is available for super cool photographs..
