The 30 meters high Kartlis Tskhovreba Monument consists of various pillars. The top part of those columns shows the most important kings, queens and other heroes from Georgian history, the bottom part shows different stories from the life of Jesus Christ. Next to the monument, there is a Georgian Orthodox church and a small café which is open at least during the summer months.
The Chronicles of Georgia Monument is located on a hill at the north-western end of the Tbilisi Sea.
Not a tourist place
If you visit the Kartlis Tskhovreba monument, you won’t meet a lot of tourists there. The place is not famous at all and even many residents of Tbilisi don’t know the sight. Nevertheless, we highly recommend visiting the monument – not only because it is impressive and stunning, but also because of the view you can get from there.
