40 meter high stone column elevates on sky and earth boundary crowned by Katskhi Holy-Ascension church. Old stronghold belief is truly unique. You will stay all alone by yourself and will forget any problems in this holy place. The most proper denomination of church is “Loneliness Fortress”. Don’t scare to pass this road through rusty ladder, by the end of road you will be rewarded.
Natural beauty along with cult architecture will left deep footprint in your heart. Therefore Georgians call Katskhi the place where one’s may be close to Lord. Living near skies deserves only person in attendances to Lord. Apparently monks wish to live this way.
Places to visit:
- Katskhi column – There are a lot different unique temples. Some of them are built without any peg, some is on Desert Island, and some churches are from alive trees, church on rock cliff, but the church on Katskhi column in Georgia is unique in its kind
