13 December, 2021 seen 184Shavnabada Monastery is a medieval Georgian Orthodox monastic complex that is located upon Shavnabada Mountain, approximately 30 km away from Tbilisi, Georgia. I have noticed this monastery atop of the hill in the past, mostly when driving…
Zedazeni Monastery is a Georgian Orthodox monastery, located on the Zedazeni mountain the hills of Saguramo, northeast to Mtskheta, and to the east side of the Aragvi River.
There is a pretty steep but good-quality road heading to the monastery complex from the Saguramo village. This could actually be the very awesome route for hiking - Saguramo - Zedazeni monastery.
We first visited Zedazeni monastery in early April 2021, despite we have been quite a few times at the Saguramo village, there is a nice hotel with an open-air pool located in Saguramo, see Sevsamora Resort & Spa
The monastery was founded by Saint John, one of the Holy Assyrian Fathers of Georgia whose mission was to strengthen Christianity in the region.

In a clear day some awesome photos toward Tbilisi town coul be made from the monastery complex. Also I believe this place is brilliant for golden hour photography.
