A small, ancient monastery is hidden in the woods at the top of the mountain. The church of the monastery belonged to the local Lortkipanidze noble family for centuries. It was surrounded by a large fence with 7 towers, which had a defensive meaning. Only a small fragment of the entire frescoes of the church has survived on the iconostasis, which probably dates back to the 15th century. The monks are engaged in agriculture. They are involved in beekeeping and they make honey, which can be bought in the monastery.


You will need a jeep to get to the monastery. The road from the center of Khoni is unpaved. The distance to the monastery from the center of Khoni is 14 km. and the distance to Kutaisi is 42 km.
