The Mghvimevi Nunnery, founded in the 13th century, is one of the most outstanding monuments in Georgia due to its location. The monastery complex consists of many buildings. The main temple is named after the Savior. It is a two-nave basilica, the naves of which are separated from each other by arches resting on massive columns. The facade of the building is decorated with very beautiful carvings. Behind the central cathedral, there is the Mghvimevi cave, where services are held on major holidays. Another attraction of the monastery is the small hall church. Its ceiling and west wall are natural rock. A bas-relief of a ram’s head is carved on the east wall of this church, and there is a fresco painting on the outside of the south wall. Other architectural buildings of the monastery are the bell tower and nuns’ quarters.
