Vardzia Excursion: by Maka Kushanashvili

5531011055_75e339cd4f_zIt is certainly true that taken expressions remain in your mind. I have always wanted to visit the Vardzia Monastery complex, so my desire came true. I would like to share with you my knowledge about the monastery complex and express my impressions.

First of all, the name of this monastery complex is very interesting. When the Queen Tamar and her uncle were visiting that monastery complex. Suddenly, the Queen Tamar was lost. Her uncle was calling her until she yelled. “I am here uncle.” Vardzia in Georgian language means “I am here uncle”. That’s why this monastery complex was named Vardzia.

Secondly, about my impressions. I spent a brilliant time. It was an unforgettable time for me. What’s more, I met friends during the excursion. After Vardzia we visited Rabati Panorama_WardziaCastle which has magnificent views and a fascinating garden.

Finally, I want to thank the President Administration for giving me an opportunity to visit such gorgeous monuments. I hope my peers will have the chance to see those beautiful monuments.
