Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. David Gareja (Georgian, Davit'garejis samonastro komplek'si; Azerbaijani: Ke i Da m b di) is a rock-hewn Georgian Orthodox monastery complex located in the Kakheti region of Eastern Georgia, on the half-desert slopes of Mount Gareja, some 60-70 km southeast of Georgia's capital Tbilisi. The complex includes hundreds of cells, churches, chapels, refectories and living quarters hollowed out of the rock face.Part of the complex is also located in the Agstafa rayon of Azerbaijan and thus has become subject to a border dispute between Georgian and Azerbaijani authorities. The area is also home to protected animal species and evidence of some of the oldest human habitations in the region.show more
