Davit-Gareji Monastery complex
The complex was founded in the first half of 6th century, by David, one of the Assyrian fathers. He came to this place together with his pupil Lukiane and settled in a natural cave. This is how the monastery was founded, later becoming known as David’s Lavra.
In 16-17th centuries Bodbe was important educational centre. Currently the monastery functions as a nunnery and is one of the major pilgrimage sites in Georgia, due to its associations with St. Nino, the 4th century female evangelist of Georgians, those relics are shrined there. according to the legend, St. Nino died in Bodbe in 335. St. Nino crossed the entire country healing and preaching people the true God. St Nino bequeathed to bury her in this land. Later when King Mirian wanted to move her body to Mtskheta, all efforts to shift the ark with Nino’s relics from its place were in vain. Originally, a lttle temple in honor of great martyr St. George was built on the burial pace. But this temple did not survive. In 850 instead of the old temple the new Cathedral, the main Building of the complex, was erected. It is a classic temple in the best traditions of Georgian architecture. The interior is decorated by the 9th century paintings and fragments of the 12-17 century pictures.
Near the Monastery is the spring of St. Nino, where pilgrims and tourists are meant to plunge themselves tree times into the frigid water.
Today, Sighnaghi is also called a town-museum, in 2007, a major reconstruction project was carried out by the Georgian government, polishing the city’s look and introducing some new museums and hotels.
